2001;2:297-307. Buttock stretch – hold for 10 to 15 seconds Exercise improves immune function, antidepressive response, and sleep quality in patients with chronic primary insomnia. However, it’s not always clear if we should perform stretching exercises before and after a workout, or just one or the other. Static stretching before exercise makes the muscles more prone to injury due to the elongation of the muscle fibers and then applying force on them during your exercise regime. Study design timeline.ISI = insomnia severity index; POMS = Profile of Mood States; PSG = polysomnography; PSQI = Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index; REM = rapid eye movements; SE = sleep efficiency; SF-36: Short Form 36-Item Health Survey; SOL = sleep onset latency; TST = total sleep time; WASO = wake after sleep onset.Â, Sleep evaluated by polysomnography, actigraphy, and questionnairesÂ, Clinical symptoms of mood and quality of lifeÂ, Physical tests: 1RM and sit and reach flexibility test resultsÂ. Natale V, Plazzi G, Martoni M. Actigraphy in the assessment of insomnia: a quantitative approach. The available patients were randomly allocated into resistance exercise or stretching, using the RANDBETWEEN function (1:1 basis) in Microsoft Excel®. However, in agreement with our second hypothesis, both resistance exercise and stretching decreased insomnia severity (ISI). 12 Sleep. Improving sleep quality in older adults with moderate sleep complaints: a randomized controlled trial of Tai Chi Chih. The effect of exercise training on obstructive sleep apnea and sleep quality: a randomized controlled trial. Sleep Med. 2004;52:892-900. However, the effects of stretching on chronic insomnia also are not well established, although some studies have described positive effects in postmenopausal woman and older adults.25,26. [ Links ], 7. Table 4 Physical tests: 1RM and sit and reach flexibility test resultsÂ. Post-hoc analysis showed significant differences between the control group and both the resistance exercise and stretching group for all above-described sleep variables (Table 2). Relieve pain Stretching is widely used in back pain treatment. Dr Shier says: "Since people tend not to set aside one time to stretch and one time for other activities, I recommend that they stretch after exercise." A number of mechanisms have been proposed to explain improved sleep following acute and chronic exercise, including anxiolytic /antidepressant effects35,36 and circadian phase-shifting effects.37 In the present study, no significant mood differences were observed between the resistance exercise and control groups. However, control participants may be assessed in the manner employed in this study if they refuse to enter an experimental protocol. Sleep Med. Table 3 Clinical symptoms of mood and quality of lifeÂ. Am J Sports Med. At 24 hours postexercise, the pooled mean effect of stretching after exercise was −0.9 mm (on a 100-mm scale; negative values favor stretching), with a 95% confidence interval (CI) of −4.4 to 2.6 mm. 2019;74:e1066. Spend more time on them if you feel the need. Thus, the final control group consisted of eight individuals (n=8), the stretching group of 10 (n=10), and the resistance group of 10 (n=10). Stretching before exercise is highly recommended because it can reduce muscle and joint tension, prevent cramps and avoid the risk of any injuries. The data were acquired in Zero‐Crossing Mode using 1‐min epochs.29,30 A computer analysis was performed using the algorithm suggested by Cole et al.,30 which is available in Action W2 version 2.5. 2010;6:270-5. Ethical approval for all experimental measures was granted by the university’s human research ethics committee and conformed to Declaration of Helsinki principles (clinical trials registration: NCT01571115). All it takes to warm up the muscles before stretching is five to 10 minutes of light activity, such as a quick walk. Sleep. eCollection 2016 Dec 1. Stretching After Exercise. Data Sources: Studies were identified by searching MEDLINE (1966–February 2000), EMBASE (1988–February 2000), CINAHL (1982–1999), SPORT Discus (1949–1999), and PEDro (to February 2000). On the basis of the PEDro scale, the methodologic quality of the studies included in the review was moderate (range, 2–7 of 10), with a mean of 4.1. One limitation of the present study was that participants were randomly assigned to the resistance or stretching groups, but not to the control group. 2002;59:131-6. Importance and Diagnosis of Flexibility Preparation of Male Sport Climbers. Hakkinen A, Hakkinen K, Hannonen P, Alen M. Strength training induced adaptations in neuromuscular function of premenopausal women with fibromyalgia: comparison with healthy women.Ann Rheum Dis. Effect of acute physical exercise on patients with chronic primary insomnia.J Clin Sleep Med. 2005;24:355-65, xi. The initial exclusion criteria were: a) use of psychoactive drugs; b) history of psychiatric diseases; c) a shift work schedule; d) regular exercise in the last 6 months. Patients unavailable for the intervention program were assigned (non-randomly) to the non-intervention control treatment. [ Links ], 5. [ Links ], 8. Sleep was evaluated with polysomnography, actigraphy, and questionnaires. There were significant differences in actigraphy data between groups for sleep latency (F2,24 = 4.16; p = 0.03), SE (F2,24 = 5.46; p = 0.01) and WASO (F2,24 = 5.94; p = 0.008). USA.gov. Each exercise was performed in three series of 12 repetitions with 30-s intervals between series and 1-min intervals between the different types of exercise. There were no significant differences between the control group and the other participants in baseline measures (see Table 1). Reid KJ, Baron KG, Lu B, Naylor E, Wolfe L, Zee PC. Usually the purpose is to reduce risk of injury, reduce soreness after exercise, or enhance athletic performance. [ Links ], 28. When a session was missed, it was rescheduled on any other weekday in the same week. [ Links ], 3. Actigraphy has been a reliable method for evaluating sleep patterns in patients with insomnia.39,40 These results are consistent with previous research in which no significant differences in PSG were observed after yoga and stretching in postmenopausal women.24. The principal outcome measures were measurements of muscle soreness and indices of injury risk. Each session included four exercises for the upper limbs: biceps, triceps, back, and pectorals; four exercises for the lower limbs: flexors, extensors, abductors, and adductors; one trunk flexion exercise for the abdominal area; and one trunk extension exercise for the paravertebral area (spinal stabilizers). The total mood disturbance score is derived by subtracting the vigor-activity score from the sum of the scores on the other subscales.32, Medical Outcomes Study Short-Form 36-Item Health Survey (SF-36) questionnaire was used to assess participant quality of life. Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 1997;20:95-101. All evaluations were conducted according design in all three experimental groups (Figure 1). The search terms stretch, exercise, warm-up, and cool down were used in all databases except MEDLINE. Stretching also reduced tension-anxiety, but no other significant treatment differences were observed for mood or quality of life. Morin CM, HauriPJ, Espie CA, Spielman AJ, Buysse DJ, Bootzin RR. Tworoger SS, Yasui Y, Vitiello MV, Schwartz RS, Ulrich CM, Aiello EJ, et al. 2003;30:379-85. [ Links ], 37. Herbert RD, de Noronha M, Kamper SJ. Increasing flexibility through stretching is one of the basic tenets of physical fitness. Stretching can be dangerous when performed incorrectly. Dynamic stretching, on the other hand, can be important before exercise. 2008;31:1001-8. Sleep. Staying flexible as you age is a good idea. There were no significant treatment differences between resistance exercise and stretching. The recovery periods between attempts lasted from 3 to 5 min. Irwin MR, Olmstead R, Motivala SJ.

A post-exercise stretch will also slow down your breathing and heart rate, and bring the mind and body back to a resting state. Progressive muscle relaxation improves anxiety and depression of pulmonary arterial hypertension patients. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of resistance exercise and stretching on sleep, mood, and quality of life in chronic insomnia patients. Passos GS, Poyares D, Santana MG, D'Aurea CV, Youngstedt SD, Tufik S, et al. Doxepin for insomnia: a systematic review of randomized placebo-controlled trials. All exercise sessions were performed at the same time of the day, 5 to 6 p.m. Stretching followed the Tworoger et al. Which usually means never. Fatigue and pain may come in due to lactic acid build up, which can hinder your performance the rest of the workout. 2017;34:200-8. Interested prospective participants contacted the researchers and were initially screened in a phone interview. These data were then reported as millimeters on a 100-mm visual analogue scale. [ Links ], 21. 2015;14:198-205. [ Links ], 35. A medical screening determined clinical diagnosis of insomnia (based on modified DSM-IV criteria, including minimum symptom duration of 6 months and minimum frequency of at least 3 times a week), electrocardiogram abnormalities, a history of cardiac disease contraindicating exercise, and the coexistence of major depression. [ Links ], 17. Does the combination of resistance training and stretching increase cardiac overload? 2002 Aug 31;325(7362):468. doi: 10.1136/bmj.325.7362.468. [ Links ], 22. The data are presented as mean ± standard error; statistical significance was set at p < 0.05. The role of actigraphy in the study of sleep and circadian rhythms. The primary outcome variable (ISI score) was evaluated by analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) of value changes (post- minus pre-intervention values) with control for baseline, followed by Duncan’s post hoc test. Sleep. Sleep. They were also instructed to record their bedtime and wake-up time by pressing the event button. [ Links ], 2. One of the most overlooked aspects of exercise is stretching after a strenuous workout.
