Why Stretching Is Important

Fit Tip: Don't Forget to Stretch

That daily workout does a world of good for your body, but the intense portion of your workout isn't the only important part — your stretching session is just as crucial.

The key to seeing results from exercise is to keep it up, but if you routinely skip out on stretching, then you may notice that you're extremely sore or stiff the next day — an almost surefire way to talk yourself out of continuing your workout routine. Not only that, but since stretching after a workout helps your muscles repair faster, that can mean that skipping out on those few minutes of cooldown are hindering your toning efforts. So the next time you're at the gym, make sure you don't leave class early, and try these cooldown stretches for any workout.
