Secrets of Success

Remembering To Stretch



I have a hard time remembering to stretch after I exercise. To help, I printed the SparkPeople Stretching Guide, then placed it in a sheet protector and hung it on the wall where I keep my weights, bands & other gear.
Helps me finish my exercise session well, so I'm ready for the rest of the day!

  • Learning stretches for each major muscle group will allow you to go from head to toe easily. Stretching and flexibility are major parts of overall fitness - don't neglect this part of your workouts. Take time to stretch before sleep - it will help you rest better. emoticon - by DRB13_1
  • I also tend to forget to stretch. If I am biking the trail I will remember to stop for a stretch, and if I am doing a video, they usually have a stretch at the end, but I do tend to forget with road rides and walks. - by PEDAL-PUSHER
