"Cool Runnings" means "Peace be the journey."

This video is really for anyone, but it focuses on opening up the shoulders, chest, hip flexors and hamstrings, which are all common trouble areas for men. Start with a warm up before doing this video. Always work within a pain-free range, and remember that flexibility comes with practice.
