Stretching against the muscle
Last week I was doing one of my regular hang routines while I watched a movie. This is normal for me, makes the session go by quickly and keeps me flaccid (attention is elsewhere).
However, one day I was watching a horror/suspense movie and I noticed that my body was trying to do the defensive “retract” thing. The whole defense mechanism our bodies have.
My question is, would it be a good idea to stretch against this retraction? Or is that just a good way to hurt myself?
I ended up changing the movie because I didn’t want to hurt myself. But it made me wonder.
