Do you tend to skip stretching or cut it short at the end of your workouts? If so, you may want to think about adding it back in. Even if it means a shorter workout, it’s vital to stretch at the end of it. Stretching helps keep your joints moving freely and without pain. It also helps prevent injuries, such as tears and tendonitis. If you’re not sure of the best stretches to do, work with a certified personal trainer to help tailor a stretching routine to your needs.

If you have any health issues or haven’t been active in a while, please check with your doctor before starting any new exercise routine.
