Editors Note: This is a contribution written by John Accardi. A lot of guys think that adding a daily stretching routine to their workout is a waste of time. This is anything but the truth! Stretching for only 5-10 minutes a day can give you some amazing benefits that will improve your workouts and your health. Neglecting stretching is just setting you up for injury and slower recovery. It is important we keep our muscles long, lean and limber.
