After you're revved up from cardio and strength training, Dr. Oz says to work on flexibility through yoga. Are you flexible enough? "Most Americans ought to be able to touch their fingertips to their toes," he says.

To start, Dr. Oz says to reach down to your toes. "So you lean over, relax yourself and let these hips sort of release," he says. "All the energy goes away." Next, Dr. Oz says to go into the plank position, followed by up dog, then down dog. Lastly, bring your leg forward and come up into the warrior position. "And you can do the exact same thing for the other side," Dr. Oz says. "It's very soothing, and that meditation is very powerful."
