Cardio and strength training are an important part of any workout plan, but recovery is essential — and stretching is too often the first thing we let slide. “You should be doing mobility exercises five to seven days of the week,” explained Le Sweat founder Charlee Atkins, CSCS, who created this stretching sequence for POPSUGAR’s 4-Week Workout Challenge. “Not only will it help you prevent injuries, but it will also enhance your performance in your workouts.”

You should still warm up and cool down on your cardio and strength days, but adding this stretch workout midweek can help improve your flexibility and range of motion, allowing you to push yourself when it really counts.
