This may come off as a "do as I say, not as I do" kind of post, but read on anyway.
Patiently stretching your muscles not only reduces some of your DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness)and improves your joint mobility. It can make you happy! Most of you are saying that you don't feel happy when you're stretching...it hurts. Well, listen closely - YOUR DOING IT WRONG!!! Those of you that have spent time stretching with me know that you should put your "head" in the muscle and breath quietly while concentrating on the muscle relaxing.
