Stretching and decompression are believed to be just as important as exercise when it comes to body maintenance and overall wellness is concerned.
If you're simply just lifting weights and not giving your body a good stretch afterwards, you're likely dealing with built-up tension that could develop into some serious health conditions, not to mention create significant obstacles in you achieving your health goals.
Having a good plan when it comes to stretching is paramount to any health and wellness plan.
First, incorporate some yoga into your life. Take a class -- it makes a HUGE difference having to sit in a class for an hour or more, multiple times per week.
Next, make sure you take about 20-45 minutes after every workout in order to stretch, that way you're helping your body recover from the abuse you just put it through.
Staying hydrated will also help you with your range of motion, not to mention ensure your body is functioning properly throughout the day.
Stretch multiple times per week for best results. Stay consistent with your stretch routine to experience maximum benefits. And contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to learn about how our treatments go hand-in-hand with an effective health and wellness protocol.
