A Sports and Runner’s Guide to Stretching

September 10, 2020

Stretching out before you engage in exercise is beneficial for your muscles. Beginning a workout with stretches helps prepare the muscles to engage and flex. Without warming up before running or engaging in another type of exercise, you may be more likely to experience muscle soreness, and you also have a greater chance of injury. Stretching has many benefits for both the body and mind, including greater flexibility, better posture, and reduced emotional stress.
