Stretching

Post by dannycap on Tue Aug 18, 2009 2:45 pm

Hi Guys

I have read a lot lately about how stretching is good for gaining mass as it allows more blood flow to the muscles.

However I have not really used stretches before in my training Rolling Eyes

Could anybody please provide some advice on using stretches. Such as when is the best time to stretch? What stretches do you recommend?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers

Hi Dannycap,

I will see if I can unearth a guide for you - im sure I have info on stretching somwhere at home.

The main thing is to remember NOT to stretch pre training which is a mistake many people make. The best method is to warmup your muscles by doing 5 minutes cardio which raises your core body temperature. then do a warmup set of your first weights exercise and then stretch inbetween sets when your muscles are warm. This helps to avoid injury and can have a beneficial impact on your mass gaining goals.

Best time i'd say in the mornings, you should do stretching after warming up as Garthy said.

Stretching will be helpful always in the morning. When the stomach is empty the body will hear whatever we say to them to stretch.

Back in the day, the biggest misconception dealt with bodybuilders being "muscle-bound," and to a degree, uncoordinated. I cannot remember the number of times my football coached scolded me for spending too much time weightlifting. Of course, in my case, my coordination had nothing to do with being muscle-bound; it had to do with being spastic by nature.

Not being a therapist or a physician, my thoughts are strictly heresy. Yet, I think there is reason to be concerned about becoming muscle bound. After all, the main focus of most lifters is the contraction phase of the exercise. It is all about lifting the weight.

Stretching should always be done after your muscles are warmed up. Warming up raises muscle temperature to make them more pliable and resistant to injury.There’s no good evidence that stretching prevents injuries, but stretching that is done properly can help to make you a better athlete.

hope u can try this.....

thanks.......

I agree that Stretching is done by morning, or before your workout Smile

Without proper stretching and exercising, you will likely get a lot of pressure in your neck and back.

Well all the aerobic exercises based on stretching the body parts. There are also some other types of exercises which based on stretching. Like yoga. I love doing neck and throat stretches in the morning as a way to ease stress that can happen while sleeping. To stretch the muscles on the right part of your neck, turn your left ear over to your left neck and hold for twenty seconds. Do it again on the other part to stretch out your left side. Rest for a moment and then move shoulder area to the back, and then to the front.

Stretching is very important, especially as we age. People who don't stretch may have limited mobility as they get older. I have recently become pretty serious about yoga and I've been finding a lot of good, informative articles about different yoga routines on www.yoga.com. I hope that helps. Smile
