(Wellness Montana) Flexibility is a huge component to a successful exercise program. It feels good, relieves pain and prevents injuries. For general purposes, static stretching should be done (meaning NO bouncing!) Most recommendations are to hold stretches for 15-30 seconds however, we suggest you hold them for longer. After about 20-30 seconds of stretching, you should feel your muscles relax. At this point, go deeper into the stretch and hold for an additional 30 seconds. Breathe deeply and use this time of your day to relax and reflect on things you are thankful for. Follow this link for a basic full body stretching program.
