Stretching

Stretching and flexibility are crucial parts of your fitness and preparation for exercise. Good flexibility can help prevent injury, and allow proper balance between muscle groups as you strengthen!

  • Do lots of stretching of the quads and hamstring. This will help keep you flexible and prevent injuries.
  • It’s important to warm up your body before stretching so your muscle become more pliable.
  • After warm up but before your exercise use dynamic stretching (stretching that involves movement)
  • After exercise try static stretching (traditional stretching)
  • Hold stretches for 30 sec+ to achieve optimal benefit.
