Weight & Fat Loss | Stretching/fat

I have been wondering does streching result in fat loss? For example if I streched my legs for a period of time would I lose fat and gain muscle?? And also what are some streches for the quadriceps? I would appreciate it if I got a reply! Thanks a lot!

Dear Guest,

No. You cannot stretch and expect that it will result in fat loss. However, not only is
flexibility an integral part in any workout regeme, it can increase your range of motion, which lengthens your muscle. Therefore, with resistance training incorporated a longer muscle is a stronger one. And a stronger muscle will burn more calories at rest.

Thanks for your question,
