Get Stretched

One of the things I like about Tribesports is that they have these great guides.

This one is an 11.5 minute stretching routing that work all your major muscles. Stretching before and after a workout is so important but something that many people often neglect. Stretching gets your blood flowing and increases your circulation. It can help you build better flexibility by lengthening your muscles. It can help prevent injury by warming up your muscles slowly before you hit them hard with the real workout.

It’s important to remember to stretch properly. It’s easy to fall into the habit of “bouncing” or rushing your stretches. This can do more damage in the long run. Stretching should never hurt. You may feel resistance as you are building your flexibility but if it hurts you’ve pushed yourself too far.

Come on over to Tribesports and join this challenge to Get Stretched!
