Stretching has SO many benefits. Taking a few extra minutes to stretch after your workout and even finding time to stretch daily can be EXTREMELY effective. Stretching keeps our muscles flexible, strong and healthy. Without stretching our muscles shorten and become tight so when you begin any sort of physical activity, your muscles could be weak and unable to extend all the way which puts you at risk for joint pain, strains and muscle damage. Regular amount of stretching will keep your muscles lean, long, flexible and ready for physical activity. Just like anything, stretching is a commitment and it does to take time to increase your flexibility and range of motion, but sticking with it will get you there.
