Benefits of Stretching
Stretching is very important and can help to improve your workouts and your general heath/wellbeing.
- Greater strength – stretching helps to improve blood flow to muscles, providing them with more nutrients and oxygen, whilst also helping them to recover quicker after workouts
- Being more flexible – stretching helps us to be more supple and increase our range of movement – this is even more important as the body ages and the muscles naturally start to shorten and tighten
- Circulation benefits – longer and looser muscles will help improve circulation and your overall health
- Stress buster – stretching helps to relieve tension in muscles from day-to-day life as well as training them. It can help instil a better sense of wellbeing and calmness – especially important for good quality sleep
