Pro Tip: Stretch Those Muscles

Nicole sees a lot of overuse injuries that come from lack of stretching. Tight muscles can overload tendons and cause inflammation and rupture. Stretching and resistance training are key to keeping your muscles strong. Light-weights, resistance bands, anything that provides resistance, will strengthen the muscle so you are less likely to have an injury.
