Warm Up FirstDo
a light warm up prior to stretching to help prevent injuries and to
maximize your stretch. Check out our 15 Minute Warm Up To Prevent
Injuries for some ideas.Drink Plenty of WaterThis
should really be a no-brainer. You need water to be successful at any
training you do, and that includes stretching. Skip out on the water,
and you will pay very soon with all the cramping you will feel.Take Your TimeWhen stretching, never bounce. Hold the stretch for at least 30 seconds, with 60 seconds being an optimal time for a stretch.Don't Go Nuts!If
you injure yourself with over-zealous stretching, you will never get
real, consistent gains in your overall flexibility. When stretching, go
far enough to feel the stretch and slight discomfort, but never so far
that you feel pain. Go slowly and do not bounce. Remember to breathe
and try not to tense up while holding the stretch.Rest Up and Remember To EatJust
like with any muscular development, rest and proper nutrition is
essential. You absolutely must give your body the fuel and time it
needs to repair and strengthen the muscles.Stay consistentIt
does you no good to stretch only when you get dared by your training
buddies to kick a doorframe or ceiling fan. In order to improve your
flexibility and keep it, without injuring yourself, is to stay
consistent. You have to do at least some stretching every day. You can
and should however, alternate your heavy stretching days and make sure
you mix in some rest days in there. Example: * Monday - Heavy stretching * Tuesday - Rest day, only light stretching prior to other workout * Wednesday - Heavy Stretching
* Thursday - Complete rest. The only stretching you should do is the
big yawn you get when you get out of bed in the morning. Besides, don't
you have other stuff to work on? * Friday - Heavy Stretching * Weekend - Take it easy, have some fun.
