Stretching


  • Although nowadays people are becoming more aware of the importance of taking care of their body in training, some things are essential to integrate into a workout routine and few do. I am talking here, of course, about stretching. But why is it so important?

    You have to stretch not only to stay supple, but also to ensure good blood circulation to the muscles, eliminate toxins, have better muscle tone, prevent injuries and maintain good physical posture. A proper stretch will relax, loosen and untangle your muscles, while giving greater freedom of movement to your body.

    Mentally, stretching will allow you to return to calm after your workout. You will experience a sensation of relaxation, calmness and well-being. Flexibility is undoubtedly one of the most forgotten physical qualities, while it is necessary to bring you the maximum benefits of a sports activity and to maximize your performances in training.

    Important: Perform the stretches in calm. Do not stretch a wounded muscle. Do not push the stretch until you feel pain. Do not stop your breathing. Stretches are to be performed slowly and controlled by breathing.
