Do you stretch after your workout?
If you don’t, you should!
Here are some of the benefits:
🏃🏻♀️Preventing Injuries. Stretching will help you gain flexibility which is important to prevent injuries. Start your workout with a dynamic stretch routine and finish off with some static stretching.
🏃🏼♀️ Eliminate Lactic Acid.
Lactic acid makes your muscles feel fatigued and sore. Stretching will help eliminate the accumulated lactic acid, relax your muscles and help with soreness.
🏃🏽♀️Defined Muscle Tone.
Post workout stretching can help give you that defined muscle tone look, if you stretch your muscles will recover faster and be ready for your next workout session sooner.
🏃🏾♀️Higher Energy Levels.
Post-workout stretches will help raise your energy levels, in fact, when your body finally cools down after a training session your brain releases endorphins which make you feel energized and happy.
🏃🏿♀️ Regulating Blood Flow.
Stretching helps the blood flow back into your muscles at a more regulated pace, allowing your heart rate to come back to normal.
PRO TIP: if you suffer of CELLULITE you should consider including elevating your legs (10 minutes after every lower body workout) in your stretching routine. Doing so will facilitate the circulation of metabolic waste polluted blood out of your legs and allow fresh, oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood to take its place.
