An important part of any workout routine is integrating in weekly maintenance sessions to stretch your muscles. This will allow you to push harder and faster in your workouts and achieve better results. This routine is designed for post-workout recovery in that there is a little mobility work and static stretches for every body part. This differs from a pre-workout routine that focuses on mobility and dynamic stretches (you don't want to do static stretches before a workout).
