You probably know about the importance of exercising regularly when trying to achieve your fitness goals, but did you know that stretching can be just as important in helping you to stay fit and healthy? Knowing how to stretch properly can improve your flexibility, alleviate pain and soreness, and give you more energy throughout the day.
Stretching before a workout helps prepare your body for physical activity, while stretching after a workout gives your body a chance to rest and relax and helps muscles to recover, all of which can reduce pain and soreness. Learn more about the importance of stretching in the video below.
