Reasons to Stretch

You know you are supposed to stretch before you exercise, but do you know why? Stretching works for us at the cellular level. It elongates the muscles fibers (hint: this is where stretching gets its name) and it increases blood flow to the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The cells of your body are then provided with more oxygen and nutrients. Once this has occurred, you start your work out with two main benefits: one, you will be less likely to injure yourself, and two, you will have more energy for working out.

Stretching can also help to build coordination and reduce muscle tension, something everyone can benefit from. Sometimes there are individuals who are in especially high need of stretching, and that would be people who are building muscle mass quickly. If you bulk muscles without stretching them, you will actually lose flexibility in those muscles – think of the guy with huge shoulders whose arms can no longer reach over his head or hang naturally by his side, or the football player who can't sit cross-legged on his heels because of strength training without flexibility training.
