Stretching Tips

WARM UP BEFORE STRETCHING. Stretching cold muscles can lead to injuries like torn or pulled muscles.

Stretch after a workout as well to increase flexibility and joint range of motion.

Stop if it hurts. You should only go as far as it feels comfortable.

Hold the stretch for 10-30 seconds to insure the muscle lengthen out.

Stretching Tips Cont.

Avoid bobbing or bouncing as this can cause muscle damage and even produce scar tissue.

Remember to breathe. Deep breaths help deliver oxygen to the muscles allowing them to stretch out and relax better.

Practice equality. Don’t favor one side or part of your body.

Remember to cool down once you’re done.

For those long times in class or at your desk doing work (or for your marathon Facebook endeavors) try these to keep your hands and neck relaxed and well stretched.

Before heading off to class in the morning or prior to working out or a long walk, try these exercises to stretch out your legs and keep them fresh.
