Flexibility: Key To Better Fitness

Many of us either neglect stretching, or we do it wrong. Dynamic stretching (e.g., jumping jacks, etc.) should be done before exercise or physical activities to prepare the muscles. Static stretching (e.g., touching our toes, etc.) should be reserved for after exercise or physical activities. Do not skip the stretching. See details in the link below.
