Thumbs up Stretching

A lot of stretching after your training is not necessary positive. You should be careful with stretching after a training session.
Stretching does not make you less stiff, but most people like to stretch as a comfortable ending after a workout session.

The best reason to stretch is to keep or increase the mobility in joints and muscles. Stretching helps you to sustain or increase the mobility, but you must be careful with stretching after a tough workout session. Tired muscles needs some time to rebuild again, and stretching can lengthen the muscles necessary rest period.

There shouldn’t be anything wrong with a little stretching after a workout session as long as it’s controlled and not too hard.

It’s a good idea to stretch if you are stiff, even if you are not training. Many people stretch at work in front of the computer, but you should be warm in the joints and muscles if you want to stretch properly.

I know I should stretch more often Not only does stretching improve our movement range, it also reduces the chances of picking up an injury.

Make sure your muscles are warm if you want to stretch to the max. Stretching cold muscles can quickly have a negative impact or even cause injury.

There is a difference between careful small stretches in front of the computer and the stretching you do after training

Very true, some people are not aware of that though, hence the little precaution from me
