This form Friday we want to focus on stretching! Filling your workouts with strength training and cardio is what we focus on when we want to get fit or loose weight, but a huge mistake in creating overall health & fitness is ignoring the importance of stretching!

 At B.YOU™ we focus on stretching throughout class! We will take time after we work each muscle group and allow time to stretch the fatigues muscle. We also take the last 8-10 minutes of class to really focus on a full body full stretch! Here are key points and benefits of stretching:

 

  • Increased flexibility

              ——————————

Let’s face it, we are all aging and with aging comes shorter & tighter muscles- We need stretching as part of our many anti-aging regimens!

  • Wider range of motion & increased balance

               ——————————————————————–

Stretching allows us more ROM {range of motion} in our joints and helps us balance! That is exciting, plus increased ROM keeps us active!

  • Increases blood circulation and helps prevent muscle soreness & cramps

              —————————————————————————————————————-

After we Shake to Change our muscles, we need to stretch to allow blood and nutrients to get to our muscles. This reduces lactic acid build up and helps our muscles to heal! We love being sore the next day because it hurts so good, but we also have to function… this helps us chase the kiddos with ease!

 

  • Reduces possible injuries

              —————————————

We have all heard this before, but stretching and flexibility is a measure of overall fitness and it makes us healthier and a better athlete!

  • Muscle Definition

              —————————

Why didn’t this bullet come first! That is our overall goal at B.YOU™ is to provide you with long, lean muscles with a feminine physique from shoulders to calves! Ladies, this is the secret… stretch what momma gave you! 

 

So next time you want to leave class early because you feel like the work is done… well you’ve missed your ticket to a stronger, healthier, and leaner you! Stick around and zen out before you leave class, the benefits are real and your mind as well as your body will thank you for it!
