Fit Links: Stretching to reach your goals

Filed under:

As fabulous as we at That's Fit think this blog is, the truth is there are hundreds of wonderful blogs on healthy living to be seen all over the blogosphere. So in this feature, Fit Links, we'll introduce you to some that have caught our eye.

I remember back in elementary school gym class, when we all had to do 5 minutes of stretching before every game of dodgeball. Back in those days, I loved stretching. In fact I wished those 5 minutes could last the whole gym class so I wouldn't have to inevitably (and repeatedly) get hit it the head by a big rubber ball.

But once I got older and started finding sports and workouts I actually enjoyed, stretching started to feel like a waste of my precious time. But don't be tempted to skip the stretches before your next workout! They not only protect you from injury but also add to your results. This week, check out these fitness blogs with helpful stretching information:

Fitness Fixation is a blog that adds a bit of humor to health and fitness blogging but also feature some really useful partner stretches.

Even stretching has become controversial lately! Does stretching while standing really improve your range of motion while you're moving? For the stretching skeptics, read what Jason Ferruggia Uncensored has to say.

And last but not least, Get Great Legs, is well... pretty self explanatory! Check it out for some stretches to help tone and shape your legs, just in time for swimsuit season.
