Benefits of Stretching
Stretching will help to increase your flexibility in your body which will make sure that you do not pull any muscles. It increases your range of motion so that you can do more movements with less energy and less tightness. Stretching also increases your body’s blood flow which can ultimately help you recover faster as well as give you more energy.
How to Stretch
Be sure to warm up and before you stretch to make stretching more effective and beneficial for you. Ride a stationary bike or walk on a treadmill before you stretch for 5-10 minutes to ensure that you do not pull a muscle. Be sure to stretch both sides of your body and do not bounce but make it a smooth transition. Stretch 7 days a week throughout the day for maximum benefit.
