Benefits of Stretch Machines

The main benefits of Stretching are a possible Improvement in Athletic Performance, Increased Flexibility and a Decreased Risk of activity-based Injuries in Running, Swimming, Sports and most Fitness Activities. Stretching before Strength Training is not recommended, (as stretching stimulates Golgi Body organelles which relax tendons making you a bit weaker in some lifts); Stretching is Highly Beneficial after Strength Training Workouts due to Increased Blood Flow to Muscles: carrying Nutrients and Oxygen into the Muscle, Increasing Carbohydrate Synthesis and aiding Protein Transport. For Runners and Aerobic Exercising Leg Stretch Machines increase Flexibility and may improve Performance in these Physical Activities and Decrease Risk of Injuries by helping Joints move through a Full Range of Motion.
