Strecth and Ab Workout
Go Fusion Fitness offers a designated carpeted area for Stretching and Ab exercises.
Stretching is an important part of any exercise program. Stretching will lengthen your muscles in order to increase flexibility and joint range of motion. Benefits of stretching include increasing flexibility, improving circulation, bettering your posture, and enhancing coordination.
Exercise balls are available to improve abdominal workouts. In addition to the Circuit Abdominal machine, one can boost their ab workout by using ball crunching techniques. These techniques use more abdominal muscles due to the stabilizing of the torso while balanced on the ball.
Benefits of Stretching
• Increased flexibility and joint range of motion:
Flexible muscles can improve your daily performance. Tasks such as lifting packages, bending to tie your shoes or hurrying to catch a bus become easier and less tiring. Flexibility tends to diminish as you get older, but you can regain and maintain it.
• Better Posture:
Stretching increases blood flow to your muscles. Blood flowing to your muscles brings nourishment and gets rid of waste by products in the muscle tissue. Improved circulation can help shorten your recovery time if you’ve had any muscle injuries.
• Improved circulation: Frequent stretching can help keep your muscles from getting tight, allowing you to maintain proper posture. Good posture can minimize discomfort and keep aches and pains at a minimum.
• Stress relief:
Stretching relaxes tight, tense muscles that often accompany stress.
• Enhanced coordination:
Maintaining the full range-of-motion through your joints keeps you in better balance. Coordination and balance will help keep you mobile and less prone to injury from falls, especially as you get older.
