Recently, I decided to skip the pre and post stretching sessions of my workout in order to save some time. After waking up the next morning more sore than I have been in years, I decided to write a post about the importance of stretching. Although many people know they should stretch, the stretching portion of the workout if often abbreviated or skipped entirely when people want to shave time off their fitness routine. This is a huge mistake.
Stretching opens up passageways in your body so that blood can better circulate and carry oxygen to muscles, speeding up the recovery process and enhancing your joint flexibility and optimal muscle lengths. Check out the stretches we do over at Rubberbanditz, we’ve even renamed some of them to make them easier for you to remember.
