Feel good stretch workout


Posted on

More often than not people complain of their muscles and their body feeling too tight, stiff and sore- including me! Unless you spend a great deal of time stretching (and who really has all this spare time?) then this is unlikely to resolve. Most workouts involve you using your muscles, contracting them, and therefore the muscles will tighten and remain slightly tightened if we do not lengthen them afterwards.

Stretching workouts also make us feel good, they stimulate your parasympathetic system- this is the functions opposite to your adrenaline release, so they create calmness, peacefulness, and relaxation. The element of core exercise here allows you to sweat a little and feel energised from strength building. So try this quick workout to enjoy strength and feel relaxed with stretching- the best of both worlds!

High plank sequence

This week I have been writing and researching for an article that investigates the best core exercises, with real evidence to support them. The research has actually proven that the plank exercise stimulates more of the core muscles than other positions and works them hard enough to build real endurance. When you add variations it then works the muscles way more than the static position.
