  • I like to stretch, but was unaware that I should stretch *after* a workout. The advice here makes sense. We'll see if it helps me to feel less sore the day after a workout.
  • I recently spent time with a personal trainer at my gym and couldn't walk without pain for 3 days afterward. Stairs were impossible. I wish he would have shared this type of info also. Thanks! I'll keep stretching and hope this never happens again!
  • I really needed this article as I was unsure how to proper stretch. thanks
  • Great article, lots of insight and I feel ready to strech the right way!
  • This was a very helpful article! Stretching is one of my favorites parts of exercise, and it's something I do even on resting days.
  • First day of strength training exercise and the stretching was my favorite part. I feel good.
  • This stretching article is great. No I know the right way to do it, and it doesn't hurt. It feels good!
  • Oh thank you so much. The stretching felt great, I even threw in a few extra. I had forgotten how important it was - definitely needed the reminder!
  • I have to agree. Stretching before, during, or after exercising does give me more flexibility. These examples will assure I am doing them correctly so as not to cause injury to myself.
    Stretching is awsome-plain and simple. I used to be involved in martial arts, and even being a guy of my size was able to move in ways that most people couldn't. Now after nearly 15 years out of practice, I can barely touch my toes! lol. I'm planning to start tomorrow at stretching again though. In addition to safety issues, stretching five you an overall healthy feeling much in the same way exercise does if you do it properly and consistently. Visit my sparkpage! I'm always open to other ideas and more friends!
  • Really not sure should I do after exercise...before or does it matter?? Some of them would love to have a demo video with them...thanks
    I would love to track my flexibility too.
  • I walk on treadmilll for 5 minutes to warm up leg and arm muscles before doing a few stretches on the main muscles that i am going to work and then after my workout strech all over body muscles. Keep movin'
  • Hey Nicole,
    I would like to see Stretches Demos in myFitness program , instead of just looking at info, so you don't forget to do the right stretching.

  • I, too, would like to see flexibility exercises tracked more thoroughly under myFitness. I wonder how/to whom to suggest this ... hmm.
