5 easy exercises to improve it – 2024-04-05 11:46:47

It is very important, especially as you get older, to work a little more with your muscles and specifically with their elasticity.

Just as strength and endurance take practice, so does flexibility.

Focus only on training to gain strength and alignment and skipping stretches and flexibility exercises can cause pain and injury. Doing a lot gymnastics that contracts the muscles (which shortens them) and never stretches them (lengthens them), the muscles can end up in imbalance. This can cause some muscles and joints to overcompensate for others that are too tight – to form properly – increasing the risk of strain and discomfort, as mentioned above.
