    What a timely article for me. Somehow stretching had dropped by the wayside. I was spending all of my exercise time with cardio and strength and I could not understand why my body was hurting where it should not hurt. Stretching is changing all that.

  • It's really difficult (and painful) to get lost flexibility back when you are older and have joint wear. So stretch regularly throughout your life to keep hold of it. - 8/15/2010 10:03:37 AM
  • Thanks for this article. Hey, I was wondering is it possible for you, Coach Nicole to make a SparkPeople fitness dvd that has nothing but stretching workouts? I seem to be doing the same stretches and have made sure to save this article to favorites but I don't always have the computer on. It would be nice to have a dvd to put in after a cardio workout or strength workout to do some more stretching.
    Just some food for thought. - 5/20/2010 9:57:38 AM
  • All too often overlooked flexibility is an important component to general good health. I needed the reminder, good basic article.

  • 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. - 3/13/2010 6:41:10 AM
  • 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! - 2/12/2010 8:06:54 PM
  • Great article! I saved it and will refer to it often. As a beginner in the world of becoming fit, this is quite useful! - 2/12/2010 3:10:14 PM
  • I have learned to take the time to stretch after a workout, and I am amazed how much more limber I have become! I feel lighter and taller too! - 2/2/2010 6:22:55 PM
  • Great Article. I will be sure to stretch after each workout. - 2/2/2010 12:49:12 AM
    Some mornings, the only thing that gets me to do my workout is knowing I'll get my muscles warm enough for a good stretch afterward...heaven! - 1/29/2010 12:59:55 PM
  • I love to stretch after a work out, For a moment I feel taller... - 1/16/2010 6:54:03 PM
  • 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 ? - 1/16/2010 6:18:23 AM
  • I look forward to my stretches after a workout, It feels great! - 9/27/2009 9:26:07 PM
  • 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! - 9/9/2009 8:31:11 PM
  • Is there a way to get Spark Points for stretching, other than adding weights? - 9/5/2009 9:29:17 AM
