Taking Time to Stretch

 

Strength and Conditioning for Saturday, December 28, 2013

Today when you are done with your workout — after your have caught your breath and rehydrated — SICFIT Scottsdale challenges you to stick around for a couple of extra minutes to work on one of the most important aspect of physical fitness: FLEXIBILITY. With all the muscular contraction we do during training, our bodies are craving a good stretching session to reestablish length and space within our muscle fibers, tendons, ligaments, and fascia. So instead of considering your workouts as “done” after your conditioning is over, try and get in the habit of adding some stretching and mobilizing to the mix. As an added bonus, taking the time to cool down in this way will also relax the mind and nervous system, so you can move on to the rest of your day or evening with a balanced body and mind!
