Move It Monday with a Mini Exercise

glute stretch

From our friends at Move It Monday:

Happy #MoveItMonday!

You probably know you need to exercise. What you probably don’t know is how to squeeze the time it takes to exercise into your schedule. For the next four weeks, we’ll be taking a look at easy exercises you can do at work (or anywhere for that matter) that can be performed in very little time. Research shows that small bouts of exercise benefit your health, so check in every Monday for the next four weeks to learn about a new mini exercise you can try.

This week we’ll show you how to perform a Glute Stretch.
