The Best Stretches for Runners Before & After a Run (As Seen in Chicago Sun Times)

No matter where you’re running, stretching is essential. It’s especially important to do dynamic stretches before you go for a run so that your body is prepared to keep moving! It’s also important to make sure you’re doing the proper stretches to calm your muscles after a run.

Stretching is an essential part of any workout routine, especially during the warm up. Dynamic stretches are great ways to help warm your body up, which also helps your body to get prepared for movement. It isn’t enough to just stretch before your workout though, it’s also very important to stretch after you run! The stretches you should do after a run are very different than the stretches you’d do before a run – you’ll want to hold your stretches.

I shared my favorite stretches for runners in my column Exercise Well with Stephanie Mansour in the Chicago Sun Times. Click here for the full list of running stretches!
