Here's Why You Need to Start Stretching Every Night Before Bed (https://goo.gl/Nuxx4d)

Stretching may be one of the best things you can do for your body.

Not only does it improve overall flexibility which can lead to reduced risk of injury, but it can also help make you stronger. Flexible, loose, well-stretched muscles are more receptive to growth and strengthening.

You want to make sure you are stretching gently, however. Too rigorous a stretch or pushing yourself too hard could result in an injury. Gentle stretching is also meditative and a great soothing and calming exercise to do before bed. If stretching is the last thing you do before falling asleep, your recovery and restoration will improve greatly, really maximizing your fitness regimen.

Back injuries aren't something you think of immediately when you talk about running, but this activity actually can put a lot of strain on your back.

The main muscles used in running, your glutes, hamstrings, and hips all work together to support your core. If one of these is weak, your spine often takes the brunt of the weight and impact, which can lead to soreness and pain.

Incorporating strengthening exercises into your routine will help alleviate your back pain and will reduce your risk of injury.

How Your Workouts Could Be Sabotaging Your Weight Loss (https://goo.gl/wr9mDF)

Many of us consider weight loss to be one of our goals and motivators for working out. So if working out a few times per week can help you lose weight, then working out even more often will help you lose even more weight, right?

Maybe not.

It turns out, you can hit a point with exercise where you may be overdoing it, leading to chronic fatigue, disrupted sleep, and irritability, not to mention plateauing when it comes to seeing gains and losing weight.

For more information on this phenomenon and tips on how to know if you've been exercising too much, read the full article here (https://goo.gl/wr9mDF).

5 Salads That Are Actually Bad for You (https://goo.gl/cqabH5)

While it may seem like anything in the "salad" column on the menu is a health food, there are actually some salads that contain more calories than regular entrees. And while high calorie count isn't always an indication that a food is bad for us, don't just assume that anything that comes in your salad bowl is a health food.

Here are five salads that are actually bad for you:

1. Any salad with something deep-fried on it

2. Any salad with a creamy dressing

3. Any salad with cheese and croutons

4. Sweet salad

5. Any salad with a fat-free dressing

For more information on why you should avoid these salads, read the full article here (https://goo.gl/cqabH5).
