2. Stretch Before and After Your Workout


Getting your muscles relaxed before you start exercising is essential to prevent injuries. Stretching is just as important after your workout. Your body will be warm, so not only is it easier to stretch, but it will help bring down your blood pressure and recover your muscles.
