That’s a bit of a stretch!

When’s the last time you experienced a truly good stretch? And no, we are not talking about reaching for the sky when you crawl out of bed in the morning. Whether you engage in regular physical activity or not, stretching is critical to mobility and quality of life.

Flexibility is the range in which your muscles allow movement of your joints. The degree of ideal flexibility varies in different parts of the body. Over time, our bodies lose range of motion as a result of poor posture, lifestyle, age, or injuries. Strength training with weights can also contribute to decreased flexibility and diminished muscular range of motion. During exercise, the constant contracting and flexing of muscles can tighten and limit your motion zones and cause pain. To get the most out of your fitness efforts, it is important to add regular stretching to your training regimen.
