Stretching Will Help Your Body Before and After a Workout

Stretching Will Help Your Body Before and After a Workout You are excited about taking your first kettlebell training class. Even though it has been six months since you have done any type of exercising, you jump right in. You are able to keep up with the class, but the next day your arms and legs are so sore you can barely walk and type on your computer. This is a result of lack of stretching. If you had taken 15 minutes to stretch before and after your workout your body would feel completely different. Pre-Workout Stretching before a workout helps to loosen up those tight muscles. Stretching can thoroughly warm up the muscles before they engage in strenuous activity which you will be doing with a kettlebell workout. It can prevent muscle strains and tears, and oxidize the muscles so they are prepared to get more oxygen. Getting more oxygen to the muscles helps to prevent muscle cramps while working out. Stretching should be looked at as the mandatory warm up before the actual warm up. Post-Workout You have pushed your body to what feels like the brink. Instead of just going home or to your next activity for the day, you should spend 15 minutes cooling those muscles down and adding to the elasticity and range of motion that has been used during the workout. This will help the muscles to not tighten up so tightly once your body has cooled down. Stretching also helps to cool the body slowly which is also beneficial to the muscle recovery process. When you workout you are putting your muscles...

Kettlebells have been controversial for a while. They are the butt of several myths like the ones below. Kettlebells Are Dangerous!

Before they are sent to the market, kettlebells go through standards that ensure they are fit for use. The fluid movement requires some training to get it right. Actually, kettlebell users are prone to less injury as compared to users of other weights They Are Only Beneficial To The Arms Well, you may be surprised (or not) to know that you can use kettlebells for any form of exercise, from a regular squat to your lunges. They work the entire body, which is what makes them so popular with workout enthusiasts. All you need is ample space to swing it. Kettlebells Make Women Super Bulky Okay, let’s debunk this myth once and for all. A woman’s composition will never allow her to be as masculine as her male counterparts. Lower testosterone levels will always keep a woman’s muscle development in check. What swinging a kettlebell does is tone those arms and back so well so that you...
