Exercises: Stretching

Although stretching is very important for those who have active lives, it also has excellent benefits for those who are not as active. Stretching has been shown to decrease muscle stiffness, improve muscle tone, improve circulation, reduce the risk of injury, decrease back pain, improve posture, aid in stress management, improve muscle efficiency and overall, improve overall body performance; since by stretching we also improve our flexibility. Flexibility is very important to preserve because:

 

1. It improves muscle balance around a joint, thus improving body posture.

 

2. Reduces the likelihood of injury when playing a sport or doing everyday activities.

 

3. It increases the supply of blood and nutrients to the muscles and cartilage, which also reduces muscle pain after training.

How about we try this stretching circuit that we have been provided by the Sport Club Bonanova?
