While exercising it is important to make sure you stretch. Even if you are not about to exercise it can be very beneficial to stretch. Stretching can increase your range of motion which leads to a decrease in injuries. The blood flow to your muscles is increased when you stretch. This can speed recovery in case of an injury. Your balance and coordination are also enhanced when you stretch. This can lead to better posture and relief from stress and stress-related tension.
- Make sure you warm up before stretching. You should stretch before and after you do physical activity. Follow these tips to get the best out of your stretching.
- Focus on major muscle groups. Pay more attention to your calves, thighs, hips, lower back, neck, and shoulders. You should stretch both sides and stretch often.
- Do not bounce. When you are stretching you should use smooth fluid movements. When you bounce while stretching you can cause harm to your muscles.
- Remember 30 and 60. When stretching you should hold your stretch for at least 30 seconds. If you have a sore area hold the stretch for 60 seconds.
- Pain is not your friend. When stretching make sure that you are not causing yourself pain. You should aim for tension for the best stretch.
Stretch often. When you stretch two or three times a week it is more beneficial to your body then not stretching at all. The more you stretch regularly then better your range of motion will be. When you stop stretching your range of motion will start diminishing.
