Hands up those who stretch before a workout …Yep, thought so, really very few of us.
Hands up those who stretch after a work out …..okay, so that’s more people, but is it just an afterthought as we leave the gym? Well, it is for me.
I for one am always time poor, so I like to use my hour in the gym for pure training, but your body does need to stretch before and afterwards and although I do a few quick stretches they’re not really that useful and I’m not using them to their full potential.
Here are my top stretches, they are very basic and only require 35 seconds in each position. Once you’re finished, you are free to leave the gym!
Back Arm Stretch
Forward Arm Stretch
