WodBottom’s recent report also discusses the difference between static and dynamic stretches and explains when each type of stretch should be carried out in order to prevent harm during weightlifting.
As a brand that not only creates comfortable fitness clothing for women but supports women of all shapes, sizes, and stages of their life, WodBottom regularly releases articles that offer important insights for women and men alike.
By addressing customers as real people and providing clothing that appeals to all – particularly those who are focused on getting strong – the company has developed a safe space for women to learn about a range of topics. In addition, WodBottom often discusses difficult subjects such as abuse and psychology as well as sharing tips on fitness and health.
WodBottom’s newest report is particularly beneficial to women who weightlift and are interested in improving their warm-up and cool-down techniques. The article begins with a brief explanation as to why static stretches should be reserved for cooling down, and dynamic stretches utilized to get joints and muscles warmed up for lifting. The article goes on to outline the brand’s chosen top 10 dynamic stretches.
The author details the importance of warming up the muscle groups that will be active during lifting, offering an example of “leg day” and pointing out that failing to warm up the knees and hips before focusing on a leg workout could lead to injury.
For an all-around beneficial stretch, the article first mentions yoga as an example that can be fantastic to prepare the body for weightlifting – though the author accepts that this is an entirely separate form of exercise in itself, and not a singular stretch recommendation.
It goes on to list wrist and arm circles, side and forward bends and a number of other stretches for the upper and lower body that women can try to improve their weightlifting warm-ups.
