QuickTip #1

Posted: April 12, 2010 in Training

Stretch today what you plan to train tomorrow. Stretching can be overwhelming, and localizing it to a couple of body parts per day can make the task less daunting. Stretching muscles right before a workout can lessen their force output and increase risk of injury, but stretching them the day before will put them in a more optimal resting length for the coming workout. Do it periodically throughout the day…a couple of stretches with 30 second holds in the morning, mid-day, before bed, whenever you think of it.
