A short video of stretches can finally be found here, MidwestFit Stretches, on our YouTube page! Be sure to read the description below the video.
Make sure you have properly warmed up before stretching, usually a light jog, or some dynamic light exercise movements will do (like jumping jacks). Next, in order to make the video short, Ben only performs each stretch for a short period of time; however, EACH STRETCH SHOULD BE HELD FOR 20-30 SECONDS. Ben just goes through them quickly to keep it short and simple.
It’s a lot simpler than most people imagine. Work your way down from the top of your body, stretching each major muscle group, one after the other.
We’ll tell you right now, there is some debate out there as to which type of stretching is better, Static vs. Dynamic, but we won’t dive into that just yet. We have had a very high request rate for a simple stretching video to be sent out, and if you ask, we deliver!
Thanks for the patience to everyone who has requested this in the past. Enjoy!
(Again, just want to note that these are very simple/basic stretches. We will hopefully get some more advanced stretches up at some point in the near future, but we just wanted to get this out there as quickly as possible)
