Importance of Stretching

We have all been there, soaked in sweat and breathless at the end of a long run or brutal lifting session. Most of us tap out and call it a day but we miss one VERY IMPORTANT piece to the fitness puzzle…stretching! Not only does stretching promote flexibility, it is also a key aspect to preventing injuries. For those of you that take pride in battling gravity by lifting those heavy weights, stretching can increase a muscle’s power output. So, if you are looking for a way to break that lifting plateau, try adding a stretching routine!
