Warm-up exercises for gardeners
Place a chair under your left foot and, with both arms, gently reach towards your toes. Repeat with the right foot.
From a seated position, place both hands on the front of your right knee and raise the knee as close to your chest as possible. Hold the position for a few seconds, then lower your knee. Repeat 5 times with each knee.
If you have had a previous injury, are currently injured or are unsure of how to undertake these stretches safely, please check these stretches with your doctor, other qualified health professional or specialist. Do not stretch to the point of pain. Stretches should be gentle and slow, never bouncy.
