Stretching Tips | Stretching For Nothing?

Frequency of stretching is important. If you need to gain muscle length, then stretching only when you exercise is not enough. Stretching before and after you exercise will help prevent injury and will maintain your current muscle length, but it will not increase muscle length. Stretching frequently through the day is the most effective way of stretching. A minimum of three times a day is needed to gain muscle length. Once you have gained sufficient length, stretching once a day and when you exercise will be sufficient to maintain muscle length.
