Stretching after the workout will help avoiding stiffness, extreme soreness, and even pain. There is increasing evidence that regular static stretching after exercising may increase power, speed, and reduce injury.
Recent studies caution people away from stretching before workouts, suggesting it actually impedes your body’s performance. According to this research, runners run more slowly, jumpers jump less high, and weightlifters lift less effectively stretching, without significantly ensuring against injury during their exercise.
Warming up before exercising entails having a detailed idea of what your workout is going to be like. Taking the time to go through exercises for different parts of the body with very lightweight emulating your actual workout strictly too build up a slight swat, or spending 10 to 15 minutes on an elliptical, a treadmill or a bicycle at moderate speed, again to build a slight sweat is very beneficial to avoid injury caused by the workout.
The benefits of warming up before a workout include:
* Increased flexibility
* Lower risk of injury.
* Increased blood flow and oxygen.
* Improved performance.
* Better range of motion.
* Less muscle tension and pain.
