In this video, we’re going to talk about why you should always stretch after your workout, not before to help decrease the risk of injury and increase flexibility.

This may seem counterintuitive. However, most workout injuries occur when the muscle is in a lengthening phase, not a contracted phase.

Static stretching before your workout…
• Does not prevent injuries
• Lowers performance
• Weakens muscles
• Decreases blood flow to your muscles

The best thing you can do is stretch after your workout.

Dynamic stretching after your workouts boosts your parasympathetic nervous system.

It’s unnatural to stretch your muscles without any sort of contraction.

Eccentric contractions are great for stretching. This helps:
• Reduce the risk of injury (50% reduction in risk of hamstring injury!)
• Train muscle to control that stretching force
• Increase your flexibility

Strength training can also increase your range of motion and flexibility.

I have a challenge for you:
Try stretching before your workout for one day. The next day, try stretching after your workout.

Record your results and let me know how it changes your workout performance, endurance, and flexibility in the comments below.
