Having a regular stretching routine can help increase your flexibility and range of motion. It will help reduce the risk of injury, especially as you get older, while also helping to improve your mental wellbeing and focus. If you aren’t familiar to stretching routines, they can be liberating and reenergising, as you wont feel as sluggish, you may feel lighter on your feet and even have more energy…win!
Regular stretching can work wonders for the body and mind in helping them to work in sync throughout the day. Stretching daily will help improve your coordination and fitness levels, while also helping your mental wellbeing. Unbelievably, lots of people still choose to miss out stretching regularly before and after workouts, which as mentioned can lead to injury, stiffness and pain.

What Different Types Of Stretching Is There?
Over time you will progress your full-body stretching routine and its important to determine the type of stretching and when to do them.
- Dynamic stretching gets your muscles warmed up for an activity/exercise. It involves moving a joint or muscle through its full range of motion.
- Static stretching requires holding a stretch in place for at least 15 seconds or longer without moving, which helps your muscles loosen up before or after exercise.
