Stretching In The News

Regular stretching cuts your risk of a sports or workout injury. But stretching just before an activity slows performance, researchers conclude.

Re: Stretching In The News

Warming up reduces the viscosity of a muscle,its resistance to its own movement.It improves performance and prevents injury in vigorus activities by two essential mean:
1.A rehearsal of the skill before competition commences fixes in the athlete's neuromuscular coordinating system the exact nature of the impending task.It also heightens his kinesthetic senses.
2.The rise in body temp facilitates the biochemical reactions supplying energy for muscular contractions.Elevated body tem also shortens the periods of muscular relaxation and aids in reducing stiffness.
As a result of these two processes,There is an improvement in accuracy,strenghth and speed of movement,and an increase in tissue elasticity which lessens the liability to injury.
