Very grateful for this article - I have been missing out on stretching because I am always in a rush to get on with other things once I have done a warm-up and a workout. Hopefully my muscles will be less sore now that know how important it is to complete the workout process. Always learning something more here - thank you.
Very helpful. I learned this week from a massage that I have not been stretching enough. The massage therapist found that I was super ticklish when she tried to massage my legs. She said that my muscle were very tense. I thought I was doing enough stretching. I've stepped it since then and I will use this article as my guide. THANKS!
I do not understand not stretching before working out, My kids both played soccer and it was very important for them to stretch and warm up. I have never heard to not stretch before working out, Can anyone explain this ?
I love, love, love this article. Thank you! I walk a total of 4 miles every day (30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes at night) and I stretch a bit after each walk, knock wood no soreness or pain. Again, I thank you for an informative article, many of us (as the prior posts show) were doing it wrong...You set us straight!
