Perform warmup stretches for children's sports and activities

If your children are actively involved in things like gymnastics, cheerleading and dance, then they'll be dealing with a lot of rigorous movement, so stretching is key to prevent injuries. This video will show kids how they can do some great warmup stretches to increase flexibility for trampoline, gymnastics, dance, cheerleading, skating, ballet, tumbling and other children's sports.

These warmup stretches are done before and after the activity. Hold each stretch for between 30 seconds to a minute depending on your level of training. Stretch those muscles and warmup before any fitness activity to avoid injury. Hamstring exercises, toe touches and other stretches before workout reduces the risk of getting hurt.
