Stretching

Stretching muscles is beneficial for improving function and range of motion. However, stretching a cold muscle can lead to injury.

Tips
  • It is better to warm up your entire body with 5-10 minutes of light cardio prior to training.
  • Perform a warm-up set for the target muscle group you are training that day. You should only stretch once the muscle is fully warmed up.
  • A muscle should be stretched only at the beginning of the workout and at the end.
  • Stretch the muscle until the tension feels slightly uncomfortable, then relax it.
  • Repeat this several times, but never bounce. Stretching should be smooth and deliberate.
  • Practicing your stretching on a daily basis is the best way to get better at it, so make sure that you're taking the time to do so.

The Workout
