Can Stretching Help Lose Weight?


Did you know that stretching can help you lose pounds? No? Well, that's because people often just want to know what's going on in your body, when you're stretching, how long you stretch your muscles, or where to spend boot camp hours at Mission Beach.

For example, did you know that stretching regularly can also help you stay fit? No? Well, this needs to be corrected. But first, let's look at how stretching burns calories.

First, let us sound for a moment as if we were from the San Diego Institute of Public Health and say stretching is great for losing weight. It is also often overlooked as a method of weight loss, and quite unfairly.

While some people, well, the vast majority of them perceive stretching just to be properly prepared for exercise, in practice stretching is much more than that. This will help you burn calories faster than usual, and it will allow your entire body to lose weight better.

Why Stretching Helps In Weight Loss?

There are several reasons why stretching is a great way to lose a few pounds, but here are just the top 4:

  1. Calories – As we briefly mentioned, you burn calories every second as you stretch.
  2. Metabolism – The postures we give you a great deal of help with a balanced digestive system.
  3. Stress Stretches have a calming quality and a relaxed body is a body that responds better to all types of physical activity.
  4. Muscles – Finally, stretching also builds muscles, because different stretches target different muscle groups, which, when properly combined, works wonders!

What stretches should I do to lose weight?

Here are all ten of the most important types of stretches you should do regularly if you want to lose a little or a lot of weight:

  1. The cobra stretches – Lie on your stomach and lift your upper body towards the sky, helping yourself with your hands.
  2. Seated twists – Sit with your back straight, bend one leg towards your knee and place it on the other, which you should keep on the floor and straight. Then turn the upper body in the opposite direction.
  3. A warrior – Perform a slight forward motion, keeping your arms straight with your back, arms folded and your back straight.
  4. Bridge – Lie on your back and lift your pelvis as far up as possible. Hold for half a second.
  5. Lateral chutes – Stand upright with your back straight and stretch your legs well, then bend all the weight to one knee.
  6. Inner thigh stretches – Sit on the floor, keep your back straight and bring the soles of your feet together while slowly lowering your knees to the sides.
  7. The knee squeezes – Lie on your back, fold your legs to your knees and bring them to your upper body while squeezing your hands.
  8. Triceps stretches – Stand upright with your back straight and bend your arms at your elbow and place it behind your head, reaching as far as possible to your lower back.
  9. Bow – Lie on your stomach, grab your ankles with your hands and bend them forward. Hold for half a minute.
  10. Down dog – Start stretching your arms and knees and straighten your arms and legs into a V-shape while pressing.

As you can see, sometimes we provide the average amount of time that a person should elongate. The amount of time you should spend on holding each part is wildly individual.

The rule of thumb is that you should try to stretch until you start to feel the burn, ie until you feel your muscles react to it, and then for a few seconds longer. It is important not to overdo it, because stretching too hard can cause injury.
