It seems like stretching is sometimes a low priority when time is limited and you want to get a great workout.  Is your goal to warm-up for your more vigorous activities?  Do you want to increase your flexibility?  Are you aware that WHAT you stretch, HOW you stretch, and WHEN you stretch really does make a difference?

Here’s a great health article that was recently in The San Diego Union-Tribune about dangerous stretching techniques and the benefits of dynamic stretching before exercise.  It also includes some great tips on how to stretch safely, and a few examples of good stretching exercises for your post-exercise cool down stretching routine.

Are you on track with your flexibility training exercises to stretch safely for your fitness workouts and sports performance goals?
