We hope that you enjoyed the tricep dip variations in your workouts from last week’s blog! If you did many of them, you may have felt what we like to call ‘happy muscle pain’ (HMP) in the back of your arms for a few days? Great stuff! This means you have broken down some muscles and built new ones (while burning lots calories to do so!) But, did you remember to stretch the triceps after every workout? We hope so. If not, get one of our fabulous personal trainers to do it for you!
What is assisted stretching and why is it good? Assisted stretching is using the help of another person (if your friend knows what they are doing then great, but a personal trainer who definitely knows what they are doing is the greatest) to help you to lengthen your muscles so that you can stay relaxed in the process. Assisted stretching consists of the last ten minutes or so of every workout session we do with our clients. (Needless to say, it is our clients’ favourite part of the hour!)
