Why is it better to strengthen a muscle rather than stretch it?

Why is it better to strengthen a muscle rather than stretch it?

Stretching feels wonderful at the moment, but is it actually helping? The answer is yes, but only temporarily. A muscle that feels tight is often a weak muscle. Which is why you can stretch and stretch and stretch daily, and that muscle will continue to feel tight.

On the flip side, strengthening a muscle is a way to naturally elongate the muscle. As you continue to strengthen it, the muscle will no longer feel tight, not temporarily but permanently.

Stop stretching and start strengthening today!
