5 Effective and Easy Stretches That Will Burn Your Fat Out

 

You know how I say breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Well, I could say the same thing for the stretching. It’s really important.

Stretching can help improve flexibility, and, consequently, range of motion in your joints. Better flexibility may improve your performance in physical activities or decrease your risk of injuries by helping your joints move through their full range of motion and enabling your muscles to work most effectively.

Stretching also increases blood flow to the muscle. And you may come to enjoy the ritual of stretching before or after hitting the trail, ballet floor or soccer field.

Chronically tense and tight muscles can also contribute to poor posture. Stretching helps to ensure correct posture by lengthening tight muscles that pull areas of the body away from their intended position. Stretching the muscles of the lower back, chest and shoulders can help keep the spine in better alignment and improve overall posture.

While it is still widely debated as to whether or not stretching can help prevent injury, it has been proven to help increase blood flow to the muscles. This increase in flow brings with it a greater nutrient supply to muscles, thereby reducing muscle soreness and helping to speed recovery from muscle and joint injuries. The less sore your muscles are, the less painful it will be to work those same muscles and to exercise in general.

I recommend doing it early in the morning after a good night sleep or before bed. Why? Stretching early in the morning opens your eyes and prepares your muscles for the day. Plus, it will make breakfast taste better. All the fat you will burn in the morning will make you even hungrier for that nice healthy breakfast you’ve already thought about preparing.

Stretching before bed drains your muscles more. By doing these simple stretches, you will prepare them for a good night relax and recovery. The sleep will help them recover faster.

By doing these 5 simple stretches for a month, you will notice that the belly’s going to get smaller each day. Don’t worry. It’s shaping up!

The fat is getting out. Your muscles are healthy and strong. You are sleeping better than before and the days are fulfilled with energy. Yes. That’s the magic in stretching.

These effective yoga stretches are recommended especially for those who have a sitting job and don’t have much time to focus on exercising.
