Warm Up Your Winter: Boost Flexibility and Avoid Injuries!

As the temperatures drop, your muscles react by conserving heat, leading to tightness and an increased risk of injury. Don’t let the cold weather put a freeze on your outdoor activities, whether it’s a brisk walk, yard work, or winter sports. The chill in the air naturally encourages us to stay bundled up, and sudden movements in this state can lead to discomfort or even injury in our joints and muscles.

That’s where the magic of stretching comes in! Just 10 to 25 minutes of dedicated stretching can significantly impact your well-being during the colder months. It warms up your muscles and alleviates tightness, preparing your body for smooth and comfortable movement. 

Flexologists recommend a combination of Dynamic and PNF stretching for winter wellness! Dynamic stretches, being active movements, are excellent for warming up and prepping your muscles and joints for holiday activities. Meanwhile, PNF stretching, which involves stretching and contracting the targeted muscle group, can increase flexibility and enhance muscular strength!
