Stretching is an important part of any exercise program. It can
help improve your flexibility and avoid sore muscles. Add these six
light stretches to the end of your exercise session today. Hold
each stretch for about 20-30 seconds - you should feel a slight
stretch. Stop immediately if you feel pain.
Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) Emma Briskey recommends
to always seek medical advice before starting a new exercise
program, particularly if it has been a while since you were last
active. If you have a medical condition you are strongly advised to
talk with your GP and/or an AEP prior to starting exercise,
especially if you would like to increase your exercise intensity.
