What do Boot Campers, Crossfitters, and Runners all have in common….none of you stretch enough!

Here’s the most common sequence of events:  Tightness —-> muscle imbalance —-> over-use injuries —-> you crying on the couch gaining weight becuase you can’t do your favorite workout!

Recipe for SUCCESS: Perform a hyper focused stretching routine (like the one I just showed you) after each workout, minimum of 8 minutes.  Being loose as a goose allows you to lift more, run faster, and stay looking good while doing it!

    I think a lot of people forget how essential stretching is before exercising, or even every day activities. I like to stretch first thing in the morning when I wake up. This helps to get all the kinks out before I start my day.

    I first realized how effective stretching was after my first pregnancy and how it helped my back and allowed me to exercise longer. I don’t usually stretch after my work out, guess I will have to start, thanks for the heads up.

    Thanks for the comment Emily! Yes your static stretching should be done after the workout in order to get the most results. You can also do this type of static stretching near the beginning of the workout if you do it after a dynamic warm up where your muscles are warm and blood is flowing. Try to avoid stretching when you are “cold.” Glad to have you on the blog!!
