Hi Everyone! Here’s a fun “throwback Thursday” from a Turks and Caicos shoot I did – a quick cool down stretching workout, perfect for after you do my LifeFit 360 10-Week Plan workouts, or when you just want to feel great and promote an energy boost. I love to stretch, it makes me feel so good! And stretching is so important, especially after working out. Studies show that stretching can help improve the range of motion in your joints, and stretching before and after a workout can help decrease your risk of injury, whether you’re running, dancing or hitting the gym. So don’t forget to stretch!
While stretching is great, using the right form is key. All my workouts always include at least two stretching segments – one as a part of the warm up, and one as a relaxing cool down stretch. Having the right alignment protects your joints, and breathing into your stretches while lengthening and elongating increases the blood flow to your muscles. Plus a good wind-down stretch can do wonders for your mind, helping to let out stress and tension.
