The best stretches for runners

Running or jogging uses many of the body's muscles, particularly those in the legs, feet, and back. Forgetting to stretch after running can cause muscles to become tense and painful, which can keep a person from achieving their fitness goals.
People should stretch after every run while the muscles are still warm and hold each stretch for 10–30 seconds. It is helpful to focus on breathing in and out throughout the stretch.

Stretches should not cause pain, and a person should stop the stretch immediately if they are finding it painful. In most cases, it is possible to modify a stretch to tailor it to the individual's level of flexibility.

In this article, learn about which stretches are best for runners by muscle group.
