Try this stretching routine daily with your partner and don't forget to point your toes!

• Standing heel stretch against the wall -- 30 seconds each leg
• Standing scale against the wall -- 30 seconds each leg
• Bridge back stretch -- 30 seconds
• Right and left splits -- 30 seconds each

1. Warm up first

To prevent injury and get your body prepped to be stretched you need to warm up. Take a little jog or do some jumping jacks to get your blood flowing.

2. Put a bend in your back

A picture-perfect scale or scorpion takes more than just quadricep flexibility. Work on increasing flexibility in your hips and your back as well.

3. Don't over do it

Make sure you are stretching your partner enough to create tension and be beneficial but don't push them to the point of an injury.

Remember to be patient and stretch every day to start seeing results!
