Gymchat 175 - Stretching

What, how and why.

Quick reminder : this week we're discussing a common dilemma - should we stretch at all, when and how?

Is it something you feel you should be doing, but aren't exactly sure what it's all about?

Here's the perfect opportunity to find out what's what. Join John and I for Gymchat 175 - Stretching. Fantastic.

Stretching. We all feel as though we should do some, but we're not quite sure when. Or how.

How do you get started? Before or after your workout? Is it really worth the effort?

This week we're going to discuss the various ways to get your stretch on, when to do it and the benefits of doing so. Helping us explore this fascinating topic is none other than Great Weight Lifting's John Cammidge.
