Have you ever wondered why our gym trainers or aerobics instructors make us stretch for a good 10 to 15 minutes before beginning the workout? There are a lot of benefits to this actually. Not only does it loosen up your muscles, it also helps you mentally prepare for the workout ahead.
To stay safe and get the most out of your workout you must always include a pre-workout warm-up before you begin and then finish with a cool down to get your body back into gear.
Everyone can get flexible if they work at it. Some people have a natural gift for flexibility others have to struggle to gain every little bit but everyone can get there. It takes persistence and regular training and the muscles adapt and respond.
Here are some easy stretches for your body –
