Stretching is the 3rd component to a complete workout along with strength training and cardio. It’s also often the most skipped portion because many do not understand its true benefits. Stretching after a workout helps your body cool down. By focusing on each stretch, your heart rate and breathing can safely return to normal. Stretching also prolongs the fat burning that occurs throughout your workout. Recent studies have shown that in the past 10 years people have become more inactive than ever. We are spending an average of 10 hours a day sitting leading to poor posture and tight muscles. Regular stretching helps keeps muscles long, lean, healthy and flexible and may also help reduce pain. Without stretching, muscles become shorten and tight. This leads to a shortened range of motion and joint misalignment; therefore your muscles will not work effectively. When your body is misaligned, it also becomes more difficult for nutrients to move throughout your body.
