Stretching helps aid in preparing the body for the stress you put on it during your workout. It helps to maintain your flexibility and mobility, and warms the muscles up to become less vulnerable to muscle pain and tightness.
Why is it important to stretch after a workout?
Stretching after a workout allows you to bring your heart rate back down to hemostasis. It helps increase flexibility and mobility, and can increase range of motion. It also helps reduce the stress placed upon your body during your workout.
