CWP Fitness: Stretching is very Important.

Hello everyone, have you been trying out all the workout routines I've been sharing here? How effective has it been, what are your results? will like you to share with us. If you have been doing the Crunch, Plank and Squat workout I have shared here and doing it properly, then dearies I'm happy to announce that you are on way to getting that perfect body. Okay, there is something important you have to do when you start your workout routine.....which is STRETCH. Stretching is very important because It can improve your range of motion, increase circulation, calm your mind and most importantly it prevents you from getting injured and straining your muscles.

Here are some stretching routine you can try...

The Runner’s Stretch

(A) Step your right foot forward and lower into a lunge, placing your fingertips on the floor or on two firm cushions if your hands don’t reach.

(B) Breathe in, then, in one motion, exhale as you straighten your right leg. Slowly return to the lunge position. Repeat four times. Switch sides.

The Standing Side Stretch

(A) Stand with your feet together and your arms straight overhead. Clasp your hands together, with your fingers interlaced and pointer fingers extended. Inhale as you reach upward.

(B) Breathe out as you bend your upper body to the right. Take five slow breaths. Slowly return to the center. Repeat on the left side.

Hamstring Stretch

  1. Sit on the floor with both legs out straight.
  2. Extend your arms and reach forward by bending at the waist as far as possible while keeping your knees straight.
  3. Hold this position for 10 seconds.
  4. Relax.
  5. Repeat.
