Lets tackle that pain!
The Art of Stretching.
So the last thing you want to do when you've been on a long run, had a good session at the gym or even been on a walk is to stretch, but stretching is just as important as regular exercise.
- Decreased post exercise muscle soreness
- Increase range of movement
-Reduced muscle tension
- Increased energy levels
-Reduced risk of injury
You can stretch anywhere, even at work. We spend a lot of our time in sitting, at desks, at computers, in front of the TV. All this bending forward worsens our posture and gives us that attractive 'hunched' forward look.
So give stretching a go, below are a few ideas for you to get started. Guess what, you can do them at your desk, just ignore the funny looks.
1. General trunk stretch
Clasp your hands together and slowly raise them above your head toward the ceiling. Reach as high as you can while inhaling deeply and hold for 30 seconds. Bring your hands down slowly while exhaling. Ensure you do not arch your lumbar spine.
2. General chest stretch
Stand tall or sit upright. Interlace your fingers behind your back and straighten your arms. With arms straight, lift arms up behind you while keeping your back straight and your shoulders down. Keep the shoulders relaxed away from the ears. Do not arch your lumbar spine, breathe and hold fpr 30 seconds.
Remember, don't push a stretch into pain, or bounce into a stretch. If you have a particularly problem area then you may need to hold it for longer than 30 seconds. Don't hold it for less than 30 seconds though, although research on the length of time to stretch is mixed, and more research is required, time given to have an effect on the collagen fibres which make up the muscle is required. 5 seconds just doesn't cut it.
