Everyone can benefit from stretching exercises. Stretching is an important part of physical fitness. Without stretching our muscles, joints become stiff and increase risk of injury. Before you begin stretching, it is important to know the difference between the two main types of stretches: dynamic and static. Dynamic stretches are great as warm ups prior to exercise. Static stretches are good for gaining more flexibility after the muscles have been properly warmed up.
