**NEW CLASS** , GOOD ADVICE & SOLE SISTERS

by

Hello ladies!

Although it may not feel necessary, I deem it is, ESPECIALLY if you are exercising on a regular basis!  STRETCHING…it does a body good and really does work to prevent injury!  I recently came across this article that caught my attention, “STRETCH OR DIE”….I urge you to read it.  It’s on point!!! and I can say that because I lived through it.  http://www.mensfitness.com/training/pro-tips/stretch-or-die

Here are some static stretches you can do at home. This type of stretching requires time and focus. It helps keep your muscles supple and elongated. It also helps prevents joint pain from tight muscles. When static stretching, you want to hold each stretch for 45-90 seconds or even more, depending on what is necessary, and repeat several times. I like to stretch during commercial breaks =))  NEVER stretch through pain!

Let’s start with the lower extremities. Here are some basic stretches for the main muscles groups in our legs:

1. The quadriceps (front of thigh)

Unknown

2. Hamstrings (back of thigh)

Hamstrings

3. Inner thighs

InnerThighs

4. Outer thigh/Buttocks

butt

5. Calf (to get both parts of the calf muscle, do this stretch first and then bend the knee while keeping this same position, with the heel down).

Calf

HAPPY STRETCHING!
