Stretch! Stretching, when done properly, can help increase circulation, digestion, and can help ease achy muscles while increasing flexibility. To stretch properly ease your body into position until you feel a stretch and try to hold for approx. 25 seconds.
- Dynamic stretching involves a series of movements that work more than one muscle at a time. These stretches utilize controlled body movements like arm and leg swings to gently take you to the limits of your range of motion. This type of stretching helps to prepare your body for the movements that it is getting ready to perform in your sport practice or competition.
