Static Stretches

Static Stretching post-exercise is an important part of the injury-prevention routine of a runner. One of the most overlooked aspects of exercise is stretching off, especially after a strenuous workout. Stretching tired and sore muscles after a workout is essential as it enhances flexibility and reduces muscle tension. It also helps in muscle recovery and repair.
