Taekwon-Do and Stretching - 7 Benefits You Need and Want!

One of the key components of ITF SEQ Taekwon-Do training is the inclusion of stretching exercises. This has many benefits for your physical and mental health and this article lists just a few.

Improved Flexibility and Range of Motion

ITF SEQ training will improve your flexibility and range of motion (ROM). This will help reduce the likelihood of injury and enhance your performance. Improved flexibility and ROM allows your body to use less energy in comparison to others with less flexibility and ROM.

Greater Stamina Stretching exercises at ITF SEQ will increase blood flow and loosens tendons / muscles. Stretching delays the commencement of muscles fatigue by encouraging blood flow and in turn oxygen delivery to the muscle. This results in enhanced endurance / stamina.

Better Blood Circulation Stretching assists in reducing post-workout muscle soreness as well as decreasing recovery time due to better blood circulation. In turn, this assists cell growth and organ functionality. In addition, blood pressure can become lower because the heart does not have to work as hard to move blood around the body.

Improved Posture Stretching can help improve your posture by relaxing tight muscles, which maybe pulling the body away from its natural position. Stretching the torso muscles can assist in maintaining the spines alignment.

Improved Mental Outlook Stretching exercises at ITF SEQ have an ability to relieve mental stress and provide an energy boost. Stretching can help jump start both body and mind by encouraging the release of endorphins resulting in a sense of tranquility as well as greater alertness.

Reduce cholesterol

Prolonged stretching exercises can help reduce cholesterol in association with a healthy diet. This could prevent and even reverse the hardening of arteries, reducing the risk of heart disease.

Reduced soreness

Stretching before and after an ITF SEQ class gives muscles time to relax. Greater blood flow increase nutrient supply to the muscles and relieve post training soreness.
