Pay close attention to what might, and probably will, happen if you skip ahead and get impatient. Things like uneven stretching, blowouts and tearing.
Right, so we want to be careful and always listen to our body and above all, be patient. Stretching is a process, it takes time. You might feel some discomfort, a bit of a burning sensation, but you shouldn’t feel much pain, and definitely shouldn’t bleed. If that kind of thing happens, stop.
