Do you stretch before exercising? If so you might be surprised to hear that a lot of people don’t and some have no idea how important it is for us to stretch before exercising and even after. If you do then good for you, you’re doing something right! 🙂
Stretching is important because it helps one get flexible and stay that way. It helps with assisting in correct posture, it increases blood and nutrient supply to your muscles, thereby possibly reducing muscle soreness and very importantly it can help with decreasing possible injury by preparing muscles for work before physical activities.
Not just the bones…Classes like yoga or pilates offer you a chance to spend an hour releasing tension physically and mentally too.
