Stretching is an essential part of any workout. It promotes the elasiticity of the muscles, ensuring that they are capable of performing the training tasks you set them, without fear of injury. However, before doing any stretches it’s important to warm the muscles up. We recommend a few minutes gentle rowing before you start stretching. Then, after the main body of your workout and cool down you should complete the session with a second series of stretches.

It takes time to make significant progress with stretching exercises. So, start by selecting just a few simple exercises to begin stretching each muscle group. Then, very gradually, increase the number of stretches and condition the muscles to greater degrees of stretch.

This comprehensive, easy to follow guide will help you avoid injury, and over time help you become more flexible.
