Get Gains Without Pains On and Off the Court

A common phrase in sports and fitness is “no pain, no gain.” 

But when it comes to stretching (and often sports and fitness in general), that couldn’t be farther from the truth. 

A prevalent misconception about stretching is that you must go “to the edge” if you’re going to get results. 

While pushing yourself through some physical intensities may be beneficial, like breathing through the burn for those last 5 seconds holding a plank pose, stretching shouldn’t hurt at all. 

For stretching, just doing 30-40% of a stretch, slowly and gently, will still have a substantial positive impact on your joints and muscles while vastly reducing the likelihood of injury.
