Stretching is a simple, effective way to increase energy and decrease pain. Muscles benefit greatly from strength training and cardiovascular exercise, but we often neglect to include flexibility training in our workout plans. Many of us are stiff and our muscles and joints lack movement because we sit in the same position all day; at our desks, in our cars. By doing this, we cause our muscles to shorten and become tight. This can result in bad posture, increased aches and pains including neck and back pain and headaches, decreased flexibility, increased chance of injury, and decreased circulation. Additionally, repetitive motions and stress can also lead to decreased flexibility.
Now is the time to start stretching! The rewards far outweigh the efforts and it feels great. It does not take much effort or time to stretch and you can increase your quality of life. Stretching can slow the affects of aging, increase energy, increase physical efficiency, reduce stress, decrease your risk of injury, increase range of motion, decrease muscle tightness, improve your posture, increase circulation, increase relaxation, reduce soreness, improve balance and coordination, decrease pain, and increase happiness and confidence.
Here are some helpful tips on how to begin stretching:
All of the Wright Now Fitness programs contain stretching throughout each and every workout. Also, at the end of every workout is our unique 8-minute Cool Down to soothe and relax your body and mind and send you off to enjoy the rest of your day! It is also great to do on its own anytime.
