Stretching is a crucial part of building power and flexibility. It also aides in recovery of sporting injuries. Correct stretching before and after exercise helps to reduce the risk of injury whilst also increasing flexibility.
We spend so many hours a day sitting in front of a computer screen, or watching TV on the couch, that it’s important to take time out to realign your body by performing stretches. Stretching exercises help in improving blood circulation which in turns helps in improving strength and muscle agility.
Try these 5 easy stretches out once a day for a week and you’ll begin to feel more flexible as each day rolls around. Increase the stretches to 2 to 3 times per day once you get into a habit. For more stretches and professional exercise programs, visit the sports doctors at the #1 Geelong Medical Centre. They offer supervised exercise programs in their onsite gym to help reduce chronic pain as well as knee and back injuries.
