A regular stretch will surely help you keep your flexibility and as you will grow older have a very good range of motion that will help you not only in your daily activities but by performing your best in your work outs. After this try a movement of your neck to your front, again slowly, trying to have a movement of three or four seconds as duration and then come back again. Now, move your neck in the opposite direction with a slow movement and afterwards come back to the initial position. You should do this exercise four-five times and then combine it with the prior movement described earlier.

After you have stretched out your neck, it is time for your shoulders. There are various techniques and the easiest would be to take your right arm and stretch it all the way to your left.
