Ten Tips to Help Prevent Running Injuries. (#10)
Improve and maintain your flexibility
Daily stretching is essential to improve and maintain flexibility, which in turn will help improve performance and prevent injuries.
Stretching should be done after you warm up your muscles – usually about 10 minutes of warm up should be enough.
Stretching should never be done in a hurry and should include all joints and extremities. Each stretch should be held in place for 30 seconds without bouncing.
It is helpful to include sports specific dynamic exercises like high knee drills, skipping, bounding, arm circles, and cross body arm swings.
