I went back through posts and the most recent post in foam rolling was a question in 2015. Anyone use a foam roller? A couple people I know who are avid runners swear by them. After yesterdays run my shins and butt muscles are so sore! OMG lol Looking for a little advice to get stretched out. I am taking the night off. No treadmill tonight.
Before fitness training, one must give importance to doing warm-up or stretching exercises to prevent accidents or to enhance the output during the training. There are also a number of precautionary measures and tips to serve as guidelines when doing fitness exercises. Here are some of them. 1. To increase your flexibility and to avoid injuries, stretch before and after workout. Stretching before workout prevents injuries during the exercises, stretching after workout, when muscles are still warm, can increase flexibility. 2. Hold your stretching position for more than 60 seconds
I have found since I took up running & especially since I managed the 5K mark that my leg muscles seem uncomfortably tight, I am guessing some of you find this too. I found this yoga video on YouTube & it really helped, even after just the one session which given my muscles were tight was not easy, lol! Check it out https://youtu.be/of2spyCtUkw Hope it helps
