How Incorporating Stretching Into Your Sports Training Workout Near McCandless Can Improve Your Results and Boost Your Recovery

With years worth of experience and knowledge providing serious athletes with serious levels of performance training, Athletic Republic Pittsburgh - Training Center knows that the benefits of stretching shouldn't be overlooked, and has prepared some information for you to help you understand how and why.

Improve Your Weights Training

Let's start with the athletes who are usually the most resistant to incorporating stretching into their sports training - weights trainers. Throughout all the weights training that is undertaken here at Athletic Republic Pittsburgh - Training Center, one of the most commonly said lines from our trainers is 'watch your posture...watch your posture'. Any serious weights trainer knows that posture is key to not only performing the training correctly but also performing it safely. Stretching the right muscles before your heavy weights training can give your body the flexibility it needs to relax the muscles that are keeping your shoulders hunched and help you activate the ones to keep your back straight and your posture on point.

Swing Harder and Get Better Rotation

If you're training for baseball or golf then you know that the level of swing and hip rotation that you need to achieve to obtain the power and accuracy you're looking for. While there's no substitute for constant practice and refinement, stretching can open up core muscle groups that are often not stretched until hours of repetitious practice. Opening up these core groups prior to your training gives you the benefit of a longer swing and better rotation from the moment you start your training, without the traditional 'warm up' that occurs as you begin your practice. If you've read this far then we would be surprised if you weren't considering incorporating stretching into your regular sports training workout near McCandless.

Boost Your Recovery and Reduce Next Day Pain

If there's one thing that every serious athlete expects, it's a potentially lengthy and painful recovery period, which can not only last for the next day but for days to come. This can occur when your muscles are stretched after an intense workout and are left tight and potentially partially contracted. With a few targeted stretches on the right muscles after your workout, even for 15 minutes, as an athlete you can see a significant reduction in not only the pain of recovery but in the time it takes your body and your muscles to fully recover. Of course, if your body is able to recover faster it's also able to be put through strain again earlier, keeping your sports training program on track faster and safer.

Don't Neglect Your Mind

Intense sports training sessions are just that - intense. Not only do they put our bodies through strain, they can also take their toll on our minds, leading us to leave the gym on edge and unable to relax and enjoy results. A short yet well designed stretching program at the end of your workout gives your mind time to relax and unwind, taking in all the strain it's just been put through and gives it time to process it all. Many athletes find that after a good stretching sessions post workout they leave the gym in a happier mood, able to better reflect on their performance and feel more positive about their workout and their results.
