Stretching Success

Always warm up the body prior to stretching, as this increases blood flow around the body, which in turn makes the muscles more supple. After exercise, slowly bring your heart rate down before you begin stretching in order to avoid blood pooling within your muscles, which can lead to cramp and dizzy spells.
