Warm-Up, Cool-Down, or Both?
|Debate raged for the last 20 years over whether people should stretch before or after exercising. That question has been pretty well answered in the last few years - stretching is best done when the muscles are warm. By stretching after you've exercised, as a cool-down technique - you're able to achieve and retain your maximum stretchability.
Of course, some people may want to stretch first as well. If you're muscles are usually tight, stretching first does help prepare you for exercise. Just be sure to stretch slowly and carefully, paying full attention to what you're doing. Stretching is best approached as a Zen-type activity. See the muscle lengthening in your mind.
So if you're stretching as a cool-down, what do you do to warm-up? Light jogging is a good warm-up, if that's possible for you. Jumping jacks, walking lunges, knee hugs, arm rotations, ankle rotations, and carioca moves are excellent warm-up activities, preparing your body for the physical work of sports and exercise.

I had been suffering from chronic pain in my upper back and shoulder every time I sat at my desk for more than an hour. After my first visit with Doctor Edelson, I felt immediate relief, and after just 6 visits, the pain was gone altogether. I also appreciated how Dr Edelson took the time to explain to me what adjustments he was making, and how they affect the alignment of my spine. I would highly recommend Edelson Chiropractic to anyone who suffers from pain.
