  • I usually stretch after I do my circuit at the gym but haven't been after walk/jog. I'm also looking for a good combo of carb/protein to eat afterwards!! Thanks for the article! - 7/24/2009 1:44:35 PM

  • Great motvation here to stretch! I am left wondering about hte following however: "After a workout, muscles naturally contract. Stretching again prevents them from shrinking. It allows your muscles to rebuild, growing bigger and stronger..." I did not know that muscles would literally shrink if not for conscious stretching. Also had not heard that stretching causes muscles to grow and gain strength! This is challenging information for me to grasp. - 7/24/2009 9:48:16 AM
  • i have had problems with stretching in the past. It is really important that you get someone to show you how to stretch properly so you do not overdo! - 7/24/2009 8:18:41 AM
  • I was blown away by the contents of this article. I started jogging a few months ago and stepped it up a bit this past week. I try to jog at least 3 times a week. At 54, I'm feeling great and realize you're never too old to jog/run. 2 days ago I really over-did it. When I got home I was whipped, literally. I felt weak and shakey. Actually sick. NOW I realize why. I ate 2 bowls of cereal. I can't wait to go running/jogging tomorrow. I will be prepared for as soon as I return. THANK you! - 7/24/2009 7:35:29 AM
  • This was really helpful. I was always told I should NOT eat after exercise so this article dispels the myth for me. Thank you. - 7/24/2009 5:19:02 AM

    Thanks for the tip. I usually drink water after my cardio exercise, but only because my mouth is dry. Next time I'll drink the recommended amount. Thanks again. - 7/15/2009 8:55:37 AM

  • I know better about stretching after a workout, but so often I do not. I am running about and have places to be, but does it make a difference when you do! - 5/19/2009 12:43:38 PM

    Thanks for the article! I definitely wasn't stretching afterwards but I will be adding that now! - 3/31/2009 9:59:38 PM
  • Thanks for an informative article. It helps me to understand the importance of stretching, cool down, drinking water and one I had no idea about, eating within 90 minutes of the workout. - 3/31/2009 6:16:23 PM
  • Great article. I did not know that I should stretch before and after. And I really never knew that I should eat. Thanks for all the helpful info. - 3/31/2009 11:55:50 AM
