Everyone should stretch!
Regular stretching helps improve flexibility, increases range of motion and reduces the risk of injury plus, stretching is even great for stress relief. So after your next workout, take a few minutes to stretch!
Post-workout stretches, static stretches, also known as maintenance stretches, help to move lactic acid out of your muscles and decrease soreness and return to a more relaxed state. This helps increase flexibility and decrease risk of injury post-workout. Static stretching are held for a period of time, usually between 10-60 seconds depending on ability.
