Fit and Healthy Lifestyle Tips Friday is here again.
Today’s Tip: Make Stretching Exercises a part of your routine
I have personally been doing some research on stretching exercises for your knee because of my recent knee issues. Stretching increases your flexibility and lengthens muscles but it does not guarantee that you won’t still have sore muscles and aches. It does help prevent injuries though. When stretching, you want to use mild tension and be very cautious that you don’t overstretch.
I have heard different opinions on warm up stretching. Some say that you should only stretch upon cool down when the muscles are warm and pliable but many say to do both warm up and cool down stretching. What are your thoughts?
Of course, we all know it’s best to talk to a fitness professional about specific stretching exercises that are the right fit for you.
I have learned quite a bit about stretching exercises and hope that by doing them, my knee will be on the mend.
