I've seen a lot of people at the gym who walk in and workout at the same time as me. What I normally don't see is people stretching prior and post workout. (HUH?!) I used to be this person who never stretched and never thought it was necessary. I've learned over time why it's so important and why you should take advantage of it.
So, why do we stretch?! Biggest and most important reason to stretch pre and post workout or even just because is to avoid injury. I remember I was at a track meet once and didn't stretch well before my race and because of this, I had sit the rest of the meet out because of a painful hamstring pull. Another time was when I was utilizing the gym and AGAIN I pulled my hamstring all because I didn't stretch. What I've noticed ever since utilizing this is that I have NOT seen any injury to myself and for that I'm grateful. Another important reason is to warm-up your muscles and really get the blood flowing. Allow yourself to really get that good pump in! After this, stretch for better flexibility, range of motion, posture, and coordination.
So next you hit the gym or just at home, STRETCH! Do yourself and your muscles a huge favor💪
