While it's important to get in a good workout, it's just as important to properly cool down and stretch afterwards.

Stretching after exercising will increase your muscle flexibility and performance, and probably save you some pain and soreness the next day.

Here are a few quick leg stretches to try after your next lower body fitness routine, thanks to FitnessBlender.com, with video illustrations and complete stretch details about which muscles you're stretching and how.

Try to hold each stretch for about 30 seconds, and remember to never stretch to the point of pain.
