If you are like most athletes you just don’t have a lot of time for stretching.
Most people that lead active lifestyles really aren’t all that excited about the prospect of getting in 10 or 15 minutes of stretching every day, mostly because they are much more interested in hammering out incredible and active workouts that give them transformative results.
To this would be a major mistake, however.
A recent study by a physical therapist in New York City – in conjunction with a major medical universities in the area – has shown that stretching for just 10 minutes a day over a 30 day period of time can have a tremendous impact on a person’s overall health and wellness (not to mention they are strength, flexibility, and ability to recover quickly).
Here are some of the benefits you are going to enjoy when you forward with a plan to stretch 10 minutes a day for 30 days at a time!
Your hips are going to loosen up
A lot of folks have absolutely no idea just how tight they are muscles are, up until they stretch them out for 10 minutes a day for an entire month, that is!
When you stretch the muscles in your hips you’re going to feel a pretty deep burn, but if you continue through the protocol we recommend above you’re eventually going to notice that your flexibility shoots right through the roof, you stand a lot taller, and you’re able to engage your core and your posterior chain much more effectively.
This makes you stronger, helps you resist back pain more effectively, and generally produces more powerful movements when you are active.
Your back pain will disappear completely
Because most people over the age of 25 are dealing with a significant amount of back pain we all kind of take this for granted, and just push through the pain as best we can.
But a lot of that pain is caused by tight muscles, muscular facia, and tension throughout our back and neck – tension that can be relieved completely with a regular stretching every day.
This is why people that do yoga enjoy almost perfectly healthy backs and next to no back pain whatsoever, and you’ll be able to enjoy similar results if you put the stretching plan mentioned above into play.
Just 10 minutes a day of stretching for an entire month can completely change your life.
