How serious do you take your stretching?

 

Do you stretch on a regular basis or is it something you only do when you have an extra few minutes here and there?

Do yourself a huge favor and check out ROM WOD - www.romwod.com - This is a great resource used by your coaches  

Following a regular stretching and mobility protocol like this will help:

BOOST YOUR PERFORMANCE

Increased range of motion can generate power and promote efficiency of functional movements through improved position and posture.

OPTIMIZE YOUR RANGE OF MOTION

Range of Motion is optimized through the strengthening of ligaments and tendons while simultaneously removing excess fascia through specific stretching routines.

ACCELERATE YOUR RECOVERY

Recovery is increased through the natural release of hyaluronic acid while simultaneously resetting the central nervous system.

 

One of the most important tips I can give you is to keep up with your stretching. These benefits could help you improve your flexibility, which could improve your performance while also helping you reduce your risk for injury. All of these benefits are less likely to happen if you do not stretch on a regular basis. 

 

Ultimately, whether your goals are either lifestyle or performance related stretching may be beneficial. For more information on stretching and what types of methods to use, schedule a goals meeting with one of your CrossFit Hard Coaches at your earliest convenience.
