After a long week at work and making it through the real estate market changes, sometime people find it hard to get motivated to go to the gym for another demanding activity. On Saturdays or Sundays it is nice to relax at the comfort of your own home. Instead of ruining your normal diet and discipline from the week that passed, try to finish off with a nice relaxing stretch.
Many people underestimate the power of stretching and Justin Moles, owner of Health eCentric in the Silicon Valley, brought the important facts to our attention.
Stretching has been linked to:
· 30% strength increases
· Body fat reduction
· Better overall range of motion
· Increased energy levels
· Stress reduction
At first stretching is a little painful, but then the body becomes familiar with the tension. Try breaking it up through out the day and before you know it…you will be back to work on Monday! Cheers to a healthy you!
