Byrdie Calls on Heather Jeffcoat on Stretching Post-Workout

The website Byrdie has garnered quite a following thanks to their informative, well written content on all things related to women's health and beauty. In this recent article they reached out to our own Heather Jeffcoat, DPT for her expert advice on how to improve the effectiveness of your pre- and post-workout regimen with a few simple stretching tips.

The article begins:

Building a daily stretch sequence is simple and comes with a slew of health benefits, from increasing range of motion and improving flexibility, to warding off the risk of injury—all from just 10 minutes of mat time a day.

Whether you’re new to stretching, need a boost of motivation, or would like to elevate your stretch game, listen up! We’ve asked the experts to break down the various forms of stretching, how long to hold each stretch to gain the full benefit, and which myths should be debunked.
