Fitness with Julie: Stretching

Stretching is essential for the body as it loosens our tight muscles and warms them up, think of it like steak- when raw it’s tough and cold- when cooked it becomes tender and warm (as long as you don’t over-cook it, so don’t over-stretch 🙂

For those of us in wheelchairs, it’s easy for our muscles to tighten up if you self-propel like I do stretching the legs and feet are important; as well as the upper-body if you’re an arm wheeler or even if you just use them sometimes 🙂

Here are a few links to stretching videos:
