Many people once believed that stretching after a workout reduced aches and pains and improved flexibility. Post-workout stretching improves flexibility and range of motion, but stretching after working out does not significantly reduce muscular soreness or injury. If your goal is increased flexibility, post-workout stretching is important; if you are trying to reduce muscle pain or soreness, post-workout stretching is ineffective. However, for top athletic performance, it is important to keep the muscles functioning optimally. Increasing and optimizing range of motion by gentle post-workout stretches can optimize performance. The key is to be gentle and listen to your body. Push the muscles just a little without overtaxing them. By holding a comfortable reaching stretch, over time you can reach further because your muscles lengthen to adapt to the increased demand.
This 8-minute routine is the perfect choice after a hard workout or just when you’re feeling a little tight. You can do this every day if you want! Plus, zero equipment required! Press play and give it a try after your next workout to feel better fast!
