Why is this so important?
Most of the time we set new goals or resolutions like losing weight, stop drinking stop smoking or eating more healthy
All this is fantastic but why do we expect to get more flexible only by stretching more.
We have the wrong idea that by stretching more and harder we’ll see improvements.
First of all, let’s review what does it mean flexibility?
“Flexibility is the range of motion in a joint or group of joints, or the ability to move joints effectively through a complete range of motion.”
Flexibility training includes:
- Stretching exercises to lengthen the muscles
- Strengthening exercises to have strong and stable joins that will support that range of motion.
Our flexibility normally varies from one joint to another, ex.; from shoulder to hip.
And for the most part, flexibility is influence by the health and structure of our muscles, tendons and ligaments.
- Muscles: consist of bundles of long cells, called muscle fibres.
- Tendons: connective tissue attaching muscle to the bone
- Ligaments: tissue that connects bones to each other.
Improving your flexibility can help you move more comfortably throughout the day.
- Focus on one thing at a time and start with something small.
- Look for an expert in the field you want to work on
- Look for an accountability partner you will work with
- Plan it and make it happen 😉
