A lot of us don't stretch enough, including myself. Stretching alone is a form of exercise and will truly help you reach your "Body - Look Goal". This is necessary for "BODY-SCULPTING". Think about it... Muscles react and strengthen from performing complete extensions back to full contraction.. and if you want to "move this over there", you must make your body do that...but safely and effectively. So let's start stretchin' more! Even if you don't do anything else... You need a "STRETCHING" routine at least. You'll be amazed at not only how flexible and motion free you become, but your body will begin shaping and forming to your designed stretches and exercises. This will also help with stiffness relief of arthritic conditions and muscle spasms if you experience those. I hope this helps somebody.
