Why should you include stretching in your workout routine?

Stretching should be a part of your daily routine for the following three reasons:

1. Improves your physical and work performance

Suppose stretching is combined with strength training or muscle building. In that case, it can help us improve posture and prevent imbalances, especially in the spine area, which can lead to scoliosis, lordosis, and kyphosis.

As a result of stretching, we improve our flexibility and muscular elasticity, making us move faster and more efficiently.

2. Stimulates cardiovascular and muscular functions

Stretching increases blood flow, which improves the supply of nutrients and oxygen to muscles and organs both during this exercise and throughout the day.

3. Reduces the risk of injuries

Stretching prevents muscle stiffness caused by exercise or emotionally stressful situations.
