I just wrote an article on some simple stretches you can do before engaging in physical activity. Since Achilles, Groin, Calves are prevalent injuries for individuals 40+, I thought I would write an article addressing that part of the body. What do you suggest? Here is the link to my article: http://kisardhillon.com/?p=1040
I find the biggest actual complaint is due to people over stretching. Stretching beyond mild discomfort into actual pain is incorrect technique. And then the second complaint is that they feel stretching is not productive use of their time. Which I compare to oral hygeine or house cleaning. Neither is absolutely necessary to get by, but neglecting either will eventually cost you big time. Helping people to appreciate stretching as an enjoyable and relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of life is my personal preference.
