What Happens if You Don’t Stretch?

Forgoing stretching before, and even after, your workouts minimizes your muscles from obtaining the proper amount of oxygen they need to effectively perform…and recover. You’ll also start to lose range of motion over time. That’s why stretching is important to every workout.
Here’s something else…did you know that even if you walk regularly, you are stretching your muscles without realizing it? It’s true! When walking, you are taking your joints through a beneficial range of motion and you are lengthening different muscles. It’s the same effect as stretching.
Stretching has its benefits and should have a place in your workout — or just daily — routine.
