Move It Monday: Stretching is Crucial

From the folks at Move It Monday:

Stretching before and after exercise is crucial. Stretching helps increase the range of motion around a joint and also loosens up the stiffness in muscles. When you warm your muscles up before exercise, the better able they are to deal with stressful movement. Stretching is also a great way to cool down your muscles afterwards.
