16 The tiger stretch makes you supple and graceful

The tiger stretch, as demonstrated here by Bonnie Prudden, is an exercise that will strengthen and stretch muscles in the torso, the legs and the arms. The sinuous and feline movement will make you supple and graceful whether you are walking across a room or swinging at a golf ball. It looks complicated, but actually the phases are natural and relatively simple. Now that you're beginning the 12th week of your exercise program, you should be able to do this easily.
