Personal Trainer Certification - Incredible Benefits
Personal Trainer Certification School Blog
loves to see the benefits of weight training and cardio exercise but
most people forget about stretching. Some athletes skip this part of
the workout because they don't see the benefits in the mirror like they
would for weight training and cardio. Nevertheless, stretching is
important as it can improve sports performance and reduce the risk of
injury. Stretching doesn't have to take a lot of time; in fact, you can
get a lot of benefit from just 10 minutes of stretching 3 to 5 times per
week, but preferably after every workout.
Moreover, a recent study published by NSCA shows a 30 second stretch after each workout will bring you flexibility benefits after just six short weeks while another study proved that stretching for only six seconds brought no flexibility benefits to the test subjects. Therefore, reserve the last 10 minutes of your workout for stretching. You can stretch 15 to 20 muscles in those last 10 minutes if you stretch each muscle for 30 to 40 seconds. If you are like most Americans, the muscles that require the most attention are the pecs, lats, hamstrings, calves, hip flexors and low back. Pick out a few more of your favorite stretches and you are on your way to a healthier, more conditioned body! Happy Health!
