The Importance of Cooling Down After Sports

Before ending the lacrosse sport with your favorite and your best lacrosse sticks, there is an important thing you need to do is cool down by stretching. If dynamic stretching movements are excellent for heating, stretching with static movements is more suitable for cooling. Here are some stretching moves you can take after exercising to reduce the pain!

1. Seated Hamstring Stretch
Sit on the floor mattress with the position of both legs straight ahead. As far as possible keep the chest position pointing forward and both shoulders to the back, reach for the tip of the toe and hold for 30-45 seconds.

2. Quad Stretch
Stand with both legs and arms positioned at your sides. To maintain balance, you may hold on to a chair or table with your left hand and hold your right foot in position behind you. Hold for 30-45 seconds to change with the left foot.

3. Shoulder Stretch
While keeping your chest and shoulders back, pull your right arm across the chest until you feel a comfortable enough pull, then hold for 30-45 seconds. Repeat with your left arm.
