Many are happy that T&T have begun to lift lockdown restrictions. If the picture of the spread of Covid-19 continues to look good, we will continue to see such lifting in a gradual way.

I cannot count the number of times that I have seen people who would have started their workout routine without stretching which is without a doubt a very important part of your routine. In this article I would explain, how you should stretch and why it is crucial to do so, even if you are not working out on that specific day. Stretching is simple but there is a right way to stretch and a wrong way to stretch. The right way is by stretching slowly, being relaxed, and focusing on the muscles that are being stretched. The wrong way (practiced by many) is to bounce, or to push the stretch to the point of pain or beyond; these methods can do more harm than good. While some people are naturally more flexible than others, one can still accomplish it when it’s performed correctly. It is very important to note that there are different ways of stretching, it all depends on your individual achievement.
