Myth vs. Fact
❓MYTH OR FACT? ❓
🤔You should skip your pre-workout stretches because now scientists say it might interfere with your performance.
💪We used to believe that stretching before your workout was a big part of avoiding injury, but it turns out it’s actually NOT.
👉Researchers believe that stretching before a workout can tire out your muscles before you get to the part where you’re actually doing work!
💡Instead it’s a good idea to warm up before you work out by doing “big” dynamic movements that mimic what’s going to happen you in your workout.
