Stretch

stretching

I thought it was only for when I wake up, or before or after I run?  No?   Why should I stretch all day?

If you have an exceptionally tight area in your body, like your hamstrings or shoulders, I give you an A-plus for stretching after your cardio or strength training. Unfortunately a few minutes of stretching once a day is not enough time to really loosen those chronically inflexible areas. It is important to take the time to stretch and lengthen those troubled tight zones at least a few times a day.

Try to incorporate stretches into your daily routine at least three times. Why not take a stretch break along with your coffee breaks?

Don’t overdo it and if you feel pain stop the stretch immediately.  For this or any other exercise routing please consult your physician or expert for advice on proper form and safety.
