If you’re still doing basic stretches before you workout or run, it’s time to uplevel your game.

Long held stretches (called static stretching) before you workout can actually decrease the reactivity or sensitivity of your muscles.

And I get it – when we know better, we can do better. So if you’re trying to clear out the cobwebs so you can move with ease – there’s a better way to do it.

I know that once you start incorporating these exercises into your pre-workout routine, your body will feel so much better!
