This combination of stretching and flexibility training which is a fantastic compliment to your training.
Flexibility is one area of fitness we don’t think much about, beyond doing a few stretches before or after a workout. In fact, stretching is the one thing most of us skip as we run out of time, energy and motivation. After all, stretching doesn’t burn many calories so why bother?
Being healthy and fit is about more than just burning calories. One reason to make time for stretching is the simple fact that flexible muscles allow your joints to move through a full range of motion.
That full range of motion is how you get the most out of each exercise and, as a result, your workouts. Stretching doesn’t just help you get the most out of your workouts, it can actually help you feel better as you age. Stretching assists with muscle soreness, improved posture, increased blood flow to the tissues and aids in releasing tension.
