10 STRETCHING EXERCISES TO DO AFTER A HIKE

Remember to include stretching as part of your post-hike routine to recuperate more effectively.
Don't hesitate to stretch during your hike if you feel the need.
Stretches shouldn't cause any pain, so make sure you're using gradual, gentle movements, and don't forget to take deep breathes and relax as you stretch.
If you have the slightest doubt or pain, consult your doctor.

PLEASE NOTE!

Never stretch without first warming up!~Always adapt your stretching to your body and to how you're feeling: listen to your body.

Tip: to ensure you do not forget anything, and go down gradually until you reach your feet.

My Top 3 walks: Lac d'Anterne, the West Coast Trail and Vercors (but I can’t choose between them)! 

I like to set off on forgotten trails, old shepherd’s or postal trails. 

I don't like: people who throw their litter in the forest.
