Therapist Thursdays- Should I stretch before or after a workout?

Katey Kinghorn Aug 24, 2013

The question asked: Should I stretch before or after a workout?

 

Danny P. Says: I tell my clients to stretch before and after workouts. Before as a part of their "warm-up" routine, and after as part of their "cool-down routine.

Fallon O. Says: I tell all of my clients to stretch before and after, it'll keep them from getting sore. Not being sore at the gym will give you a better workout, and if your muscles are stretched properly, theres less chance of an injury.

Brianna P Says: I say to stretch after, because your muscles are already warmed up from exercising. It'll be easier to stretch after a workout too.

 

Stretching is an important aspect of keeping your muscles healthy and relaxed. So keep stretching away! Your muscles will thank you.
