Side Stretch IT Band
Unless you can get out of bed and run 20 miles right away, you should start with some stretching. Your IT band is a band of muscles running down the side of your legs and is one of the more likely muscles to get tight. Stretching your IT band can be helpful if you plan on doing any walking, running or even taking the stairs during your day.
Start in standing, cross your right leg over the other leg. Move your hips away from the standing leg and lean over towards the left. You should feel a stretch on the right hip. Make sure you hold it for 20-30 seconds and then repeat on the other side.
