We all know that exercise is important, but what about stretching? Stretching lengthens the muscles as well as the tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues. This prevents the muscles from developing in a shortened state and encourages a greater range of motion. Stretching aids in the recovery process by increasing blood flow and delivering oxygen, hydration, and nutrients throughout your body. Straightline incorporates stretching in classes via dynamic warms ups and calming cool downs. You might be tempted to just go through the motions, but here's why you should think twice before skipping the stretching...
