Today we are going to be talking about something that might not be very fun. However, this is something you should not skip out on, despite feeling like it is pointless.
Yes, we are talking about stretching. While warming up before your workout may not feel like it is very important, it is vital to improving your performance, and keeping you safe from injury. The main goal of warming up/ stretching is to get your body primed and ready before your training.
Whether you’re a professional bodybuilder, powerlifter or everyday gym goer, warming up is crucial and should not be neglected for your event.
You might think of doing a quick quad stretch, swing your arms back and forth, and then think you’re good to go. Sadly, that’s not the case. Remember, stretching must be done properly for it to protect you from hindering your performance.
