The Do's And Don'ts Of Stretching

To get the most out of your stretching follow these simple tips.
Do stretch 10-15 minutes, 2-3 times a week.
Do repeat each stretch 3 times for best results.
Do get professional help if you have medical limitations.
Do your stretches in a slow, controlled manner.
Don't bounce when stretching. Just hold the stretch for a count of 5.
Don't force a stretch. Just go to the point where you feel pull, not pain.
Don't twist your spine or hyper extend your neck.
Don't hold your breath when you stretch. Long, slow breathing helps the body to relax.
