5 Stretches to Improve Your Flexibility
One of the most over looked components of fitness is flexibility. Flexibility is defined as full range of motion around a joint. It is important to decrease injury, to keep your joints from getting stiff, and to maintain movement all over your body. Flexibility is important in every day life. Without adequate range of motion everyday activities like picking up a dropped object, reaching for things, gardening and even looking both ways before crossing the street become difficult and painful.
Maintaining and regaining flexibility is easier than you think and can be accomplished in small moments of time. Below are suggested stretches that will help improve your range of motion.
Flexibility training can be done daily. Hold each stretch at the point of tension in the muscle (but NOT PAIN) for 10-15 seconds without bouncing. If you experience limited and painful mobility, consult your physician prior to starting an extensive stretching program.
