// FEEL GREAT
may is national fitness month, bet you didn't know that! in honor of this month (and it almost being bikini season), with each post i am going to share a favorite workout tip. what better way to start then with what i do before every good sweat sesh... stretch. stretching could easily be one of my favorite ways to detox and decompress but also wake up and prepare.
stretching improves appearance by lengthening muscles but also is the ultimate for preventing injuries. additionally, stretching is a great warmup (or cool down!) as it helps to improve muscle / mind coordination, prevent soreness and fatigue and promote a faster recovery. it's a vital part of physical fitness and extremely important when setting fitness goals.
when stretching, i always try to do a stretch for at least 10 seconds, or 5 big breaths. i start either with my head//neck or feet//ankles and work my way through your body. it's an easy way to hit every major muscle group. when stretching, always remember you don't aim for pain; expect tension but don't over exert (or bounce!) to the point of extreme discomfort. take the extra few minutes, it's important! now you tell me... what stretches are your go-to?
