You will be able to recover more quickly and become stronger with a good?stretch workout.It is a common myth that stretching out before a workout will keep you from hurting yourself, but it turns out that the opposite is true.
Researchers from the University of Hawaii-Moana studied over a thousand marathon runners. Results of this study revealed that stretching prior to a workout increased chances of sustaining injury. Runners who waited to stretch until after the marathon were just fine, but those who stretched before the marathon increased their risk of injury by 33%.
Stretching your muscles causes them to loosen and it removes tension on the joints, it also puts your muscle into a relaxed and resting state. After stretching, muscles are stretched out and this can be very dangerous. Muscles need to contract over and over during exercise, and when they are stretched out they need to work much harder to contract effectively.
Warm up your body by moving, not stretching before strenuous exercise, then do the?stretch workout after you are done. Stretching afterwards enhances recovery and increases the body”s ability to travel through its range of motion. ?Stretching after your workout will help your muscles recover faster. Another benefit is that you will gain more strength this way than if you stretch beforehand. You can increase strength gains by as much as ten percent.
The muscles contract during exercise, which is a valid point that deserves being repeated here. ?Your muscles will stay in contraction for the first few hours following a weight lifting session. Until your muscles will not have recovered until they have returned to their original length instead of the contracted length. By stretching out after a workout, the muscles get to recover much faster. Do a stretch workout right after your resistance training for the best effect.
Static and Dynamic are the two types of stretches, do the right kind of?stretch workout. Static stretching is the best to boost muscle recovery after an intense workout and increase strength. When it comes to stretching, this is the most accessible technique. ?All you need to do is hold the stretch for 30 seconds to a minute. Be sure to take nice deep breaths and relax, stretching feels good.
