Stretching has helped me not only prevent injury, but really helped in keeping my muscles nice and loose! My stretching routine is something therapeutic I do after each workout.
Take a look at what I do to stretch out!
I hold each stretch for 30 seconds to 2 minutes. I stretch AFTER my workout, when my muscles are nice and warm. Think about your muscles like a rubber band…it is much easier to pull a warm rubber band than one that is ice cold.
I try and stretch each major muscle group, even if I didn’t work it out.
I wasn’t blessed to be very flexible, so I have to work on it. Consistency is the key.
