At the planning of your Wellness Sports Club in Geneva and Lausanne, stretching is best known for promoting flexibility and recovery. But do you know the other benefits of muscle stretching?
Stretching causes a blood flow to the heart of the muscle, helping to get rid of toxins that cause aches and pains. Another plus point: stretching helps to fight the risk of injury by helping the muscle recover after exercise.
Finally, note that a stretched muscle gains developmental capacity. Interesting for people looking for shape or weight gain !
