The AMAZING Benefits of Stretching

Thursday, July 21, 2016

So many people do their exercises religiously, do the correct technique, then have to go somewhere, then don't have time to stretch. There are so many benefits of stretching, so here are some reasons why they should be an integral part of your health routine. 

1. It allows you to have better range of motion for your muscles - if muscles are able to do this, we can use them to their full function and have the capability to participate in more activities, and perform more functions 

2. It can help your muscles relax and balance tension - if your muscles are tight, they hold tension and toxins. Stretching allows the muscles to release the tension so it doesn't impact in a negative way on the organs of your body

3. it can assist with injury prevention - muscles are attached to bones to help our bodies move. If they are not functioning properly because they were tight, they pull on the bones and other muscles which can cause injury. 

4. Research has shown that the best way to stretch is to hold the muscle to the longest range you feel comfortable with, hold for 30 seconds then release. Do this for each muscle you've worked with so your muscles have the best chance of working their full function

5. You'll decrease your fatigue - tight muscles can cause your body to fatigue because they don't function the their full capacity and other muscles have to work harder to cope with the muscles that aren't working properly. 

ADD STRETCHING TO YOUR FITNESS ROUTINE TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR WORKOUT
