body in a wretch? then STRETCH!

Stretching before and after your workout is crucial to your body’s overall development and will improve your overall joint movement, range of motion, and mobility. Sore after a workout? Probably because you didn’t properly warm-up and stretch those muscles. You can get away with a no warm-up routine for years, decades even. But, eventually, your body’s aches and pains will speak louder than your resistance to a proper warm-up!

In a time crunch?

For the upper body, the most important muscles to stretch are:

  • Shoulders
  • Neck
  • Lower back

For the lower body, you should be stretching these muscles:

  • Calves
  • Hamstrings
  • Hip flexors
  • Quadriceps (Quads)
