S-T-R-E-T-C-H

Have you stretched today? Stretching is important both before and after a workout. What are some of the benefits?

Here are a few:

- Fatigued, tight muscles are less capable of performing the skills/movement required, stretching helps loosen you up.
- Stretching can help prevent injury by aiding recovery and decreasing soreness.
- Stretching ensures that your muscles/tendons are in good working order. The more conditioned they are, the better they can handle the stress of your sport and exercise.

Remember to S-T-R-E-T-C-H!
