STRETCH YOUR LIFESPAN
When you elongate your muscles through stretching, you reduce the risk of ripping and tearing muscle fibers and tissues. This can happen as a result of pushing the body too soon. If you go straight into exercise without having warmed up or moved at all, the areas that are still tense and/or stuck are the most susceptible to injury.
Protect Your Joints
Your joints are surrounded by connective tissue and have muscle attachments. When you practice moving through your range of motion around your joints (think knees, hips, and shoulders), then you’re reducing tension and stickiness around those areas. This reduces pressure on joints and allows them to move more freely.
