Up Against the Wall
A total stretch for arms, shoulders, back and hamstrings. Place your hands on a wall at waist height, fingers spread, and walk back until your body forms a right angle; make sure your feet are planted directly under your hips. Keeping your arms and legs as straight as possible, imagine your spine growing longer (think of pulling out a Slinky). It helps to press the wall with your hands while squeezing the muscles at the front of your thighs toward the back of your thighs.
