It’s not easy to know how to stretch properly
How to stretch is important. However, for the vast majority of us in modern day society, we tend to fluctuate between extremes. Our working days are often sedentary. Our time is spent sitting in front of a computer with little or no need to move or exercise unless it is for a lavatory break or for a coffee run.
Then for a small pocket of time, we want to exercise like crazy. We push ourselves hard in the gym to experience the adrenaline rush and relieve some of the pent-up frustration.
But often we forget to transition. We forget to go through the gears from sedate to manically active.
We know we should warm up and stretch. But how should we stretch? How can we be sure we are getting it right?
