Muscle of the Month:  October 

 

STRETCHING CHALLENGE

We all know that we need to stretch, but we don’t always get around to it. Make it a priority this month with the October Muscle of the Month stretching challenge! Stretching before and after exercise has many benefits including enhancement of exercise performance, reduced muscle tension, increased range of motion in the joints, and increased blood circulation throughout the body. Learn how to perform one foam rolling exercise and two static stretching exercises by participating in this month’s challenge. Although you can only participate once per day, you may participate as many days as possible throughout the month of October. Every participant will be entered into a drawing for one of three $10 Walmart gift cards. The more you participate the more your name will be entered!  

 

Rules:

Each participant will complete three different stretching exercises:

                  -Foam Roll Hamstrings

                  -Anterior Stretching Machine

                  -Posterior Stretching Machine (Hamstrings/Calves)

**Notify a Fitness Center Attendant before participating.

-If you are new to these stretches, ask a Fitness Center Attendant to demonstrate before participating.

-Perform each stretch for the designated amount of time before moving to the next stretch.

-Fitness Center Attendant will record your participation on the M.O.M. Board and enter your name into the M.O.M. Raffle.

-Participate as many times throughout October to increase your score.

-Patrons can participate once per day.

-Patrons must participate twice in order to receive WellU Credit.
