TAKE BACK YOUR BODY
You’ll feel more able to withstand longer exercise sessions when you stretch before a workout, as you’ll be less likely to experience fatigue in your muscles. This increase in flow brings with it a greater nutrient supply to muscles, thereby reducing muscle soreness and helping to speed recovery from muscle and joint injuries. The less sore your muscles are, the less painful it will be to work those same muscles and to exercise in general. Stretching awakens the areas that need more time and encouragement to wake up, so that they can efficiently take you through longer workouts.
The calming effects of stretching can interrupt the cycle of stress, helping you regain control over your behavior and balance the levels of cortisol in your body. When your body is tight, you are more susceptible to pain and injury. Muscles tense up, and you don’t move as freely, or you might not want to move at all. Restriction of movement or painful movement can bring on stress simply because it’s harder to get around. It can cause you to miss work or social engagements, adding to stress and decreasing quality of life.
