  1. Stretch it Out!

    Before exercising, it helps to stretch your body out and get loose. When running at the track for example, it helps to jog for 1 lap and then take 10 to 15 minutes to stretch. Warming up your body and getting your muscles lose is very important for those who want to follow an optimal approach to exercising. Consequences of not stretching out include torn and strained muscles, that can ache for days, weeks and even months! At the end of the day, there is no reason that you should not stretch for at least once a day. When exercising, it is a good idea to stretch before and after you workout.

Fifteen minutes before I write, a half hour after, at least. People die from blot clots (deep thrombosis) and I don't want my job to kill me. I love writing, but I love living, too!
