The Importance of Stretching

by BodyWar on October 21, 2017 , no comment.

How many of you forget to stretch after a workout? Guilty! Let’s start by making it part of our daily workout routine… Ok??

Here’s why stretching is important:

  • Helps improve flexibility (increases your range of motion)
  • Assists in correct posture by lengthening tight muscles that pull areas of the body away from their intended position (because of so much time at our computers, many of us have tight chest muscles which pulls the shoulders and head forward, leaving us with a hunched shoulder look)
  • Potential to decrease injury by preparing muscles for work before activity
  • Increases blood and nutrient supply to muscles, thereby possibly reducing muscle soreness.
