What is the single best thing....

...That you can do for you health?

I have no information to back this up, besides personal experience, but i feel that stretching is the single best thing you can do.

I not talking about just touching you toes a few times, I am talking about stretching and holding every single muscle group in you body.

Stretching your calves, your hamstrings, your quads, your back, your shoulders, your chest, and your lats.

In other words, you might have to watch these videos of women stretching to get an idea of what i am talking about. I think i did most of these stretches.

After i did this, i slept better than i had in months and woke up with energy. If you are going to do one thing, stretch, then if you have energy go for a jog.

I would say the single best thing you can do for your health is transfering your brain into a younger, healthier clone body.

Perhaps though the clone body should be made to do plenty of stretches first though.

You are on to something here cube. I've had many coaches in the past that believed this firmly, and I do also. I had one coach who used to explain it by the way a dog wakes up. If you look at a dog when they first get up, they stretch completely. They have the instinct that our inteligent brains have allowed us to ignore. If you stretch every day when you get up, and every day before you go to bed I can guarentee you will feel better.
