Which muscles should I stretch?

Muscle Balance

You have a balanced diet, and now balanced stretching. Stretch the muscles on both sides of the body so your body doesn't have to compensate.

For instance, stretch both the quads and hamstrings (front and back of the thigh) so they will be equally flexible. If your hamstrings are already flexible, and you can put your nose on your knee, but your quads are a bit tight, you don't need to spend much time on the hams. But you do need to work on your quads with stretching exercises.
