If you include softball as part of your regular fitness regimen you need to incorporate a balanced, well-rounded stretching routine to keep your muscles loose, supple and pain free.

You can download this free 10 minute stretching routine (right-click and choose Save target as…) to your iPad, iPhone, Android or computer. Or you can watch it online here.

The best time to do this routine is at the end of your softball game. Cool down with a few minute of easy jogging or walking and a few deep breathes, then take a seat on the ground and go through the stretches at a slow, relaxed pace.

If you’re doing the routine without exercising (or playing softball first), be sure to warm up properly and if any of the stretching exercises cause pain or severe discomfort, discontinue immediately.

To learn more about the muscles used in softball and why a stretching routine for softball is so important, take a look at my comprehensive softball article.

Until next time, stay healthy, keep stretching and God bless.

 

Kind regards,
