Stretching Exercises

Stretching and flexibility exercises are an important part of any workout. Stretching your muscles after an intense workout helps to maintain flexibility, range of movement and improves body posture. Regular stretching after exercise can also help to reduce post exercise muscle soreness.

Stretching Exercises

It’s important to perform a dynamic warm up routine such as our body weight warm up before your main exercise session to prepare the muscles and joints for activity. Then, at the end of your session perform a 5 minute cool down followed by a series of static stretches targeting all the main muscle groups.

WorkoutBOX provides stretching and flexibility exercises for the whole body including legs, chest, back and shoulders. Perform these static self stretches after your cool down at the end every workout.
