So maybe this stretch looks like some lame robotic dance move you'd see in the 80s, but it's actually an amazing stretch for the sides of your body. It's especially good the day after an intense core workout when your abs are so sore it hurts to laugh. This stretch is best done right in front of a wall.

When you run, bike ride, or do anything that uses your lower body, it's important to stretch your leg muscles thoroughly. One area that may need a little attention is your Iliotibial band (ITB). This is a long band of fascia (connective tissue) that runs along your outer thigh. Stretching this area will help prevent knee injury or pain, and you can do it anywhere there's a wall. Well, you could even use a tree if running outside.

I just discovered a great variation to the oh-so wonderful side-bend stretch. If you bend one knee and take turns leaning your torso to both the right and left sides, it helps to target that area even more so it'll feel so amazing that you won't want to stop. Check out the video to see how it's done.
