In today’s busy world, we often neglect one of the most important lifestyle habits that keeps our body functioning at its best. Stretching offers many health benefits, including increases in: flexibility, release of endorphins, improved blood flow, and energy levels. Stretching also helps to reduce post-workout soreness, recovery time, and decreases risk of injury.
Stretching is a form of physical activity that involves deliberately stretching a muscle, tendon, and or connective tissue with the purpose of improving muscle elasticity, range of motion, and flexibility. Many different stretching techniques exist: several of the most common ones are ballistic, dynamic, static, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), and low load long duration stretching.
