The exercises to achieve an excellent stretch are very important before you start exercising and after. Although many people do not do them, before talking about stretching exercises we will see why they are so necessary.
It is essential that we stretch before exercising because this is how we prepare our body for exercise. The muscles will warm up and be ready to run or muscle …
If you have ever been to class pilates or any other directed activity you may have noticed that you stretch before you start.
What happens after the exercise? After physical activity we should also stretch , since the muscles have suffered a tension and now it is time for them to relax.
If we do not do this, we can suffer some injury, cramps and strengthen our shoes.
Now that you know all this, let’s stretch!
We are going to do the exercises to achieve an excellent stretch starting from the legs to the head. Each one of them should be done without haste and trying to stretch well each specific part .
The other exercise that we are going to perform will focus on stretching the inner part of the thighs.
To stretch these 3 areas of the body we will go in parts. We will start by stretching the gluteus, then the lumbar and, finally, the abdominals.
We can help the corresponding hand to the side that have turned their legs to push the knee to the ground and achieve greater stretch.
Then we go back up slowly, putting pressure on the lumbar area. The last thing that is incorporated is the head. Another alternative is to choose to do the candle .
Now it’s time to stretch the upper part of our body and for this we will do some muscle stretching exercises with our arms.
This part of our physiognomy is very important and can not be forgotten.
Afterwards, we would bring our heads back.
You can introduce variations in these stretches. This is a routine in which you can include a stretch that you like to do or replace one of the above.
There are so many ways to stretch the muscles that the variations are endless!
Something that we would like to add is that, at the end of this small routine of muscle stretching exercises, we will breathe.
This we will only do after the exercise. If we stretch before the exercise is not necessary.
This exercise allows us to relax and finish this relaxation session successfully.
