Stretching is important for every work out. It improves balance, stability, and circulation; aids athletic performance, relaxation, and posture and helps you to avoid injury by maximizing the range of motion of your joints; minimizing unnecessary strain and cramping; and increasing your overall flexibility.
Without stretching, tendons, ligaments and muscles will shorten, causing damage over time.
Total Gym Inside blogger and “Fytness Fanatik” Amanda Lynn Mayhew demonstrates how to use your Total Gym to get a total body stretch for your back, arms, hamstrings glutes and thighs.
These stretches isolate specific muscles for a few breaths. Hold each stretch at least thirty seconds to lengthen muscles and lead to flexibility.
