    Also, I noticed that you are an Arrow fan with a Stephen Amell profile pic and an arrow-related quote. I am a Flash fan, so I changed mine to Grant Gustin and a speed quote lol

    DareToBeeIncredible I don't pretend to be an expert, but this is how I did those.
    #6 - work on pulling the shoulders back and down.
    #14 - keep your foot flat on the floor, leg straight out to the side as you can. If still not feeling it, try pushing the other knee out a bit.
    #15 - ditto but keep toe pointing up.
    #19 - butterfly. No real help for this one - my knees are flat on the ground! Just bring the feet in as close as possible and keep the back straight. Try to tilt the pelvis anteriorly rather than posteriorly (what that means is, bum out!).
    #22 - just a final relaxing sort of stretch. Reach forward as far as you can with your arms while sitting as far back as you can. Sink down into this one and just relax.
    I don't doubt that other people do these slightly differently but, as I said, this is just how I did these. I hope this helps.

    They just felt awkward, like they weren't stretching anything. Maybe I'm already flexible in their target areas; I don't know.

    Top to Bottom is a good one. Which stretch are you wondering about?

    You might find codes useful. There are others too, of course!

    Hi TopNotch! Thank you for your reply. I'm looking to tone up, run faster, and lift heavier things. I have changed my program to a preset, the guardian. I feel like I can keep it up. As for my weight, my BMI is good, it's just a lot of fat and some muscle. Attaching a picture seems to be really complicated, and I don't know if you could help, but I could use some explanation for the stretches on "Top to Bottom".

    Welcome to the Hive! Your programme looks good. Do you have a specific aim or are you just looking at getting fit? You say you're "pudgy" but not how much, and you've been working out "off and on". Is your programme something that you can maintain? In the early days, it can be good to allow yourself to start slow and build up. If you have any questions, just ask - about anything. This is a safe place and we're all pretty friendly. All the best for your journey.
