Top 10 Stretching Exercises For A Chilling Winter Workout
Women Fitness|November 2021
Warm-up and stretching is significantly important before a workout and more so during the winter, to avoid muscle stress and strain.

Being over the age of 50 is not a death sentence—in fact, many of us now have more time to take care of ourselves. Having a healthy weight, eating properly, not smoking, and limiting alcohol consumption is all super important. We are not getting any younger, but we ain’t dead yet. Find a professional who can help get you back on track, and aim to get at least 150 minutes of physical activity/ week to help maintain your muscle mass and a healthy weight.

Warm-up and stretching is significantly important before a workout and more so during the winter, to avoid muscle stress and strain. The cold weather makes muscles tighter and less supple, leaving them vulnerable to injury. A proper stretching routine will warm up the muscles. Adding 10 minutes to your workout stretching routine will warm up your muscles to protect them during the cold weather.

Warm-up includes some aerobic activity to get the blood moving to your muscles, like a brisk walk or run for a few minutes. You’ll soon feel the effect of increased blood flow.

Dynamic stretching is not the best for improving flexibility. But it is good way to warm up for your sport and improve performance. A dynamic warm-up should include explosive movements such as high knees, skipping and moving lunges. It is important to remember that the purpose of these types of exercises is to prepare your joints and ligaments for the high-intensity portion of your workout. Make sure not to push yourself too hard, but instead focus on starting slow and revving up your body for an effective and dynamic workout.

Below Are Listed Top 10 Stretches To Get Your Body Rolling.
