Speed, agility and acceleration.
Stretching is a crucial part of playing or practicing a sport. Stretching increases your range of motion and flexibility by making your soft tissues, such as muscles and ligaments, longer by decreasing stiffness. It can also help improve your performance in your sport, help with soreness after exercise and lower your chance of injury.
A healthier day and smoother sleep.
Stretching loosens tight muscles which helps your muscles both relax and increase blood flow. It also encourages the release of endorphins, providing a sense of tranquility and euphoria. A session directly after work will give you a more comfortable sleeping experience. Stretching also has powerful stress-busting abilities.
Putting You First
A stretching routine increases blood flow to your muscles. This, in turn, gives you two benefits that are: Reductions in post-athletic soreness and recovery time; and improvement of your overall health.
These are functions of greater blood flow helping promote cell growth as well as organ function. Additionally, your heart rate will slow down as it has less work to do, while your blood pressure becomes more uniform and constant.
