Stretching

Stretching can be a bore, but it's crucial if you want to reduce injuries and stay fresh.

Not everyone likes stretching, it can seem like a nuisance and it’s the first to get the boot from a training session when you’re time-poor.

During your challenge it’s recommended that you stretch before and after every training session, be it after a swimming session, a core workout or a cross-training workout.

In this lesson you’ll learn how to conduct a dynamic upper body/shoulder stretch.

Learn to love to stretch!

Take your stretching further by taking a yoga or Pilates class, your body will love you for it.
