Physical training exercises
Here are some extra tips to supplement your regular training programme.
Stretch at the end of your exercise session or, once you’ve warmed up, spend 30 minutes stretching. Each stretch should be taken to the point where you can just feel the tension in the muscle you’re trying to stretch. Wait for the tight sensation to ease completely, then go a little bit further into the stretch. This should take less than 30 seconds each time. If the tight sensation doesn’t ease, back off slightly so the feeling is a little less and do the stretch there. If the tension doesn’t ease, you are NOT stretching or elongating the muscle – you’re just holding it in a tight position! Repeat at least 3 stretches and then move to the next muscle group.
