STRETCHING IS HARMFUL?

Posted by JENIE=) Sunday, November 29, 2009

Be careful of doing these stretching’s, for you might be doing more harm than good.

Yes, it is suppose to make you more flexible, have better balance due to the increased range of motion of your joints, improves blood circulation and relieves stress in muscles. But are you doing it the right way?

I remember doing this when I was in high school before our cheer practices. We cheer dancers do the bend over’s and the likes, without warm up!

Yes, you need to do warm up ~ aerobic exercises, to loosen the muscles before you go into the exercise proper. Because without it you still have a tight muscle that might get you injured. You need to make the muscles more elastic to avoid tear, and to prepare it for greater endurance. And during warm up, carbohydrates and fatty acids are made available for energy production.

You can have aerobic exercises like brisk walking, jogging, ballroom dancing, cycling. Wikipedia defines it as “an exercise that involves or improves oxygen consumption by the body”. It is a continuous activity, long duration, of low intensity.

These aerobic exercises actually have many greater advantages than just to loosen your muscles for the stretching. It is a cardiovascular exercise that will strengthen your heart muscles thus giving you a healthier heart. It also is a form of exercise and so makes you lose calories, helping you achieve your desired body weight.
