Tips to start anew with workouts after the holidays
We must bear in mind that not having performed any type of activity on vacation is important to know that our muscles are very relaxed and we need to re-stimulate them and prepare them for exercise and effort. A good way to start is doing long and intensive sessions of stretching and warming .
