 The VF-360 Defense System - GET REVITALIZED -Works Great

 If you participate in sports or not increasing your muscle flexibility is good for your body. Here are some ideas on how to increase your muscle flexibility through proper stretching.

 The first thing you need to do before playing sports or going for a run or just walking to get exercise is do a proper muscle warm up. You need to take from 5 to 10 minutes to stretch your muscles for a good warm up. Remember you warm up to stretch you do not stretch to warm up. Depending on your body type determines how long you take. A lean body will take a shorter time to get warm the a stocky body type. Your stretching routine should be gentle and relaxing. You should take long and relaxed breaths with each muscle stretch.

 Regular stretching before exercise with help reduce injuries. Tight muscles are more prone to injuries and strains. Laying on your back and pulling your knee to your chest and hold for a 5 count will increase your hamstring flexibility before jogging or walking. In a standing position cross your ankles and bend over a touch your toes for a five count. Its ok to bend your knees a little to relieve pressure on your lower back. Make sure to breath slowly letting out the breath at the end of the stretch.
 
 Stretching does many things for the body. It increases the elasticity of soft tissue and decreases your chance for injury by making your body more flexible. It is best to do a proper warm-up before stretching. You can jog for 5-10 minutes to warm up your muscles. New research has shown that a dynamic stretching protocol prior to exercise is best. Dynamic protocols are a way to move in a functional way. For this type of warm-up you need progressive, continuous movements such as high knees, butt kicks, lunges, forward and lateral movements, skips, and any change of direction exercises.
 
 Cross training is a great way to loose weight. Your body gets used to doing the same thing everyday. It needs a change. If you do the same workouts your body will adapt and no longer be affected by what you are doing. Change is essential to overall fitness and health. When you are doing something you enjoy, and something different it is easier to keep up a routine because boredom is not as much of a problem. Overall, cross training helps to prevent injuries, burnout, and exhaustion, while at the same time improving strength, fitness, mental and physical health, and happiness.

 

 


 Deep breathing will help you relax and get oxygen to the injured area which will lesson the pain. Meditation of soothing imagery such as laying on a beach, floating in space,etc should be included with your deep breathing. Therapeutic massage of the muscles, tendons, and ligaments is also vital to help you recover. You need to acknowledge the pain and what area of the body it is centered in. This will help your mind focus on the internal healing process.
