Does stretching assist with your fat loss goals?

The third component of designing a complete program from Transforming Your Body In Record Time is STRETCHNING!!!

Most of us hate it, because it is boring, sometimes a little uncomfortable, and if we are short on time, is the first thing to be dropped.

However, stretching should be just as important as the other components. So to clear things up, we will refer to stretching as soft tissue work.

Before and after a workout you should be performing some type of soft tissue work for injury prevention, increased blood flow circulation, relaxation of tension, and to reduce soreness. You can do this either through traditional stretching or some type of foam rolling.

If you haven’t learned how to use a foam roller or do not know what it is, we highly suggest you look into in investing in one. It’s like a self-massage that will leave you with a floating experience. It can get uncomfortable, but that’s ok. Keep massaging around until you feel the area recevied enough attention.

There is no magic bullet or stretch. The key is to keep consistent on doing at least 5-10 minutes of soft tissue work a day. You will reap the benefits overtime and will notice a difference in how you look and feel.
