Key Stretches

Stretching is so important when it comes to keeping up with a good training routine and ensuring you don't get injured. 

I always recommend clients so dynamic based stretches as part of their warm up to increase blood flow, mentally prepare themselves for the training they're about to do, and some movement patterns that are likely going to be part of the exercise they're about to do. 

It's a good chance to incorporate stretches into part of your daily routine too. Either first thing in the morning or in the evening when you're relaxing. 

Runners in particular need help and focus on their hips. This is why I've included this short video showing you how to do stretch your hip flexors and the pigeon pose which will stretch your glutes and piriformis. 

I'd recommend holding the stretches for 30-60 seconds as part of your routine and make sure you do them on both legs to keep your flexibility nice and balanced.
