Stretching is extremely important for your body!
It’s critical before and after workouts:
– Stretching before a workout helps prevent injury and gets your blood pumping.
– Stretching after a workout helps reduce your heart rate and helps blood from pooling in your lower extremities.
But did you know it is also SUPER important to stretch a little bit EVERYDAY!!! This keeps your muscles flexible, strong, and healthy! It also maintains mobility in your joints – if you don’t stretch regularly, your muscles actually shorten, weaken, and tighten, which leads to a number of injuries!
This is especially important if you’re in front of a computer or your phone for many hours of the day! Check out these stretches to do everyday when you’re working on the computer!
