Stretching is an extremely important part of the whole workout in Women Only Bootcamp Classes in Alhambra.
Stretching is important no matter who you are with whatever workout you might be doing. I stress that it is important in Women Only bootcamp classes because from personal experience I have seen women not giving a whole lot of effort in their stretching. Being a very flexible male that trains in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I know first hand how important flexibility is. Over time, flexibility can help improve your range of motion during workouts allowing you to get more out of it and also avoid injury. Avoiding injury is number one and by stretching you also reduce the amount of soreness you will have in the long run. When you have fitness goals in mind, reducing the amount of downtime your body requires will serve to help you reach those goals quickly.
Progressing in Women Only Bootcamp Classes eventually require a certain level of flexibility.
This flexibility should be developed naturally just by taking the classes and working on the stretches in the middle of the workout. It becomes difficult for those that don’t take the stretching seriously and don’t develop flexibility. This is another reason why stretching is important. If you aren’t at a certain level of flexibility you won’t be able to safely participate in some of the more advanced workouts and exercises that the instructors have prepared for the students that are already ready for them. Don’t get left behind and work hard to reach those goals you have set. You have the rest of the day to take things easy but during this (usually) hour long workout session you should take it seriously and give it your all, including the stretching.
If you feel like you need extra activity outside of Women Only Bootcamp Classes then you could do just that.
Try some things at home while you are watching one of your favorite television shows or something. One of the best ways to develop a strong core and flexibility is through Pilates. Many of the stretches that many martial arts gyms and bootcamp programs use take from Pilates and use some of the stretches. The whole of Pilates is developing strong balance, core, and flexibility however and is often compared to yoga but can be much more difficult if you don’t fully understand what your core is. We hope you continue to kick ass in your classes and stay strong!
