Stretching has been anchored in our training habits for a long time, yet still raises controversy.
Should we do it before or after our training, or avoid them altogether? The vast majority of people to whom we ask the question: Why are you stretching? answer us with: because it is important before training!
In fact, there is no miracle recipe to prepare your body for physical activities. The important thing is to reproduce the movements of the sport, gradually increasing the intensity. Depending on the demands of your physical activity, the warm-up will be different from one person to another. For example, a gymnast will work on their flexibility before a routine on the ground, while the runner should make running movements such as light jogging, heel raises and squats in order to prepare their bodies for action.
