STRETCHING 101

Stretching is crucial while working out. There are so many benefits to why you should stretch before and after each work out. I just went to my first hot yoga class and couldn’t believe how amazing my body felt after the class. Have you done a hot yoga class? It was so intense! I didn’t realize how tight my muscles were from not stretching enough. This class was unreal! First of all I was super intimidated because it was 75 minutes long. It felt so good to sweat it out and really get into lengthening my muscles. I’m realizing that I need to do this at least once a week. On the other days I’m committed to keeping up with my flexibility by stretching for at least 15 minutes a day. You’ll notice a huge difference especially with creating longer and leaner muscles. Push yourself on your fitness journey. I mix it up every week with new classes and new ways to reach my goals.

Did you read this post on the benefits of cycling? I have to stretch or else my hip flexors get so tight I can’t move. It’s something I have to work on every single day. stretching exercises before and after workouts from Lunchpails and Lipstick
