Benefits of improving your flexibility
What You'll Need
- Find out the schedule of your local gym or yoga studio to find out which class suits you and your needs.
What You'll Do
- Working on your flexibility helps you avoid injury: your muscles, ligaments and tendons need to be stretched steadily and over time to be able to reach your goals in your work out routine.
- Flexibility can help you get rid of 'text neck' and relieve back pain: working on mobility will help to loosen up muscles that will help you to stand and sit straight and avoid injuries creeping up on you.
- You will be able to train more efficiently: the more range of motion you can achieve during exercise, the more you will get out of it.
Tips & Warnings
- Stretching is important at all ages, since much flexibility can be lost over time. Increasing flexibility isn't hard but it doesn't happen overnight so you have to keep at it until you reach your goal and then stretch on a regular basis to keep yourself at that level.
