What are the benefits of stretching? makes you stand straighter prevents leg cramps strengths the heart muscle helps you lose weight helps you sleep better
Weegy: Stretching has so many benefits. Just start a program of stretching, and you’ll soon notice many of them. [ Some of the benefits of stretching are– relief from pain increased energy levels increased flexibility better range of motion of the joints greater circulation of blood to various parts of the body relaxation and stress relief enhanced muscular coordination improved posture greater sense of well-being Increased flexibility and range of motion. As we age, our muscles tighten and we have less range of motion in our joints. Simple activities that we once took for granted, like cutting our toenails, picking things up from the floor or zipping a dress, can all become difficult. A regular stretching program can help lengthen your muscles and make these daily activities easier and more enjoyable. Improved circulation. Stretching improves circulation of blood to the muscles and joints. Increased blood circulation, of course, brings nutrients to our cells and removes waste byproducts. Better posture. Chronically tense and tight muscles contribute to poor posture, which in turn can affect the functioning of our internal organs, not to mention our appearance. Stretching the muscles of the lower back, shoulders and chest can help keep the back in better alignment and improve posture. Relaxation and stress relief. Stretching, done properly, helps to relax tense muscles which result from stress. The feeling of relaxation brings a sense of well-being and relief from tension. Reduce or prevent lower back pain. Greater flexibility and range of motion in the hamstrings and muscles of the hips and pelvis help to reduce the stress on your spine that causes lower back pain. ] (More)
