Fitness Tips and Tricks for Everyone.
Stretch! Take the time to stretch.
Your muscles tighten up with every workout.
To reduce your chances of pulling muscles you need to get length back to them.
After you have exercised and your muscles are warm is the best time as they will stretch further. Hold a stretch for 10 seconds, take a deep breath, blow it out and relax before sinking further into the stretch. Hold for a further 20 seconds. BREATHE and RELAX!
