Top 10 Reasons to Stretch

Most people forget that part of any physical activity includes stretching. Stretching itself is most effective when done after a warmup and after completion of the activity.

Stretching pumps irritants and inflammation away from muscles, and increases the blood supply and flow of nutrients to muscles and joints. This is important especially after vigourous activity. This process promotes tissue healing and injury repair.

Here are some more reasons why stretching can be beneficial:

1. Reduces muscle soreness after exercise
2. Accelerates tissue healing
3. Improves balance and co-ordination
4. Improves posture
5. Promotes muscle relaxation
6. Boosts your energy levels
7. Relieves back and joint pain
8. Reduces the likelihood of back pain
9. Promotes total body relaxation and a greater sense of well-being
10. Maintains lifelong flexibility

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
