The Flexible Way to Go

These stretches are good to do even if you're not getting ready to work out. "The purpose of stretching is basically to improve the range of motion in your joints," Rubin says. You should stretch every day.

It's simple to begin stretching. There are books and videotapes that cover many techniques. You can also order free brochures from The Arthritis Foundation (www.arthritis.org). Just remember, stretching is one workout that demands no pain, and offers great gain.
