Warm-Up, Cool-Down, or Both?
|Debate raged for the last 20 years over whether people should stretch before or after exercising. That question has been pretty well answered in the last few years - stretching is best done when the muscles are warm. By stretching after you've exercised, as a cool-down technique - you're able to achieve and retain your maximum stretchability.
Of course, some people may want to stretch first as well. If you're muscles are usually tight, stretching first does help prepare you for exercise. Just be sure to stretch slowly and carefully, paying full attention to what you're doing. Stretching is best approached as a Zen-type activity. See the muscle lengthening in your mind.
So if you're stretching as a cool-down, what do you do to warm-up? Light jogging is a good warm-up, if that's possible for you. Jumping jacks, walking lunges, knee hugs, arm rotations, ankle rotations, and carioca moves are excellent warm-up activities, preparing your body for the physical work of sports and exercise.

Dr. Lott takes the time at each and every visit to truly listen to what I have to say so that he can provide the best treatment possible. I'm a trainwreck when it comes to multiple aches and pains and he always knows how to get me feeling great again either through chiropractic work or acupuncture (or sometimes both!) I've never been to a doctor that is as personable and easy to talk to as Seth Lott. His location is super convenient for me and I will definitely be back. Thanks for being awesome, Dr. Lott!
