This standing routine is performed in real time, so it’s easy to follow along. It’s a great daily routine for seniors or for anyone looking for an easy but effective standing stretching routine.

Start off this standing stretching routine with a warmup including neck circles, standing Ts, modified jumping jacks, and standing march to help get the muscles warm and loose.

The first stretch, a standing sidebend, is great for the neck, arms, upper back, and hips.

Next, a chest stretch is a great way to open up the chest area, and this will also help with shoulders and breathing.

The final stretches might be best done while holding onto a chair, countertop, or using a cane for balance. Side lunge stretch, runner’s stretch, and standing hamstring stretch are all great to loosen up the muscles in the legs.
