The Inseparable Relation Of Flexibility And Stretching
Flexibility and body stretching is essential for achieving desired results in your exercise routine. Flexibility reduces chances of injury to your joints and muscles that are prone to injury. Improving your flexibility will improve your performance and give you results in short span.
The best time for stretching is after a little warm-up. This will improve blood flow to the focused muscles that improves muscle elasticity. Stretching your sedentary cold muscles can sprain them. A little stretching after completing our exercise will also help them relax.
Increasing flexibility is easy and can be achieved by simply performing 2-5 reps of each stretching exercise till it gives you a mild discomfort. Always hold a little bit before coming back and slowly come back to the position, where you started your exercise.
