WE DO NOT OWN THIS MUSIC, WE JUST ENJOY IT!

This is our warm-up stretch in it's entirety. We always do some variation of this, give or take up to three stretches, but this is a pretty comprehensive stretch, both for gaining flexibility and for warming up.

Do all stretches in both directions/with both arms/legs.
Shake your legs out between straddle stretches.

The stretches, in order:

1 - Ankle rotations
2 - Knee rotations
3 - Hip rotations
4 - Core rotations
5 - Trunk twists (alternating)
6 - Shoulder rotations
7 - Cross-body shoulder stretch
8 - Behind-the-head shoulder stretch
9 - Nods
10 - Side-to-sides
11 - Ear-to-shoulders
12 - Neck rotations (3 each way)
13 - Standing straddle (walk your hands back through your legs)
14 - Right lunge
15 - Right straight-legged lunge (hamstring stretch)
16 - Left quad stretch
17 - Right warrior pose
18 - Right hip adductor/groin stretch (toes-to-the-sky)
19 - Left lunge
20 - Left straight-legged lunge (hamstring stretch)
21 - Right quad stretch
22 - Left warrior pose
23 - Left hip adductor/groin stretch (toes-to-the-sky)
24 - Seated straddle
25 - Seated straddle, reaching forward (groin and hamstrings)
26 - Seated straddle, reaching to the side, chest down
27 - Seated straddle oblique/lat stretch (hand over/behind ear)
28 - Side figure 4 stretch (hamstring)
29 - Forward figure 4 stretch (hamstring)
30 - Cobra stretch
31 - Prayer stretch (shoulders, face to the floor)
32 - Calf stretch (walk back the previous stretch, feet flat)
33 - Wrist rotations
34 - Elbow rotations
35 - Elbow half-moon rotations
36 - High-rising kicks (5-10 each leg, feel free to alternate or all then switch)

A butterfly stretch between steps 29 and 30 is recommended, we completely forgot about that, but we usually do it.

This is a REALLY long video, and we realize most people don't have the patience for it. We recommend actually using it to stretch in real-time, and stretching along with us!
