STRETCH! regular stretching is just as important as regular exercise

August 17, 2017

Flexibility is the ability of muscle to lengthen and allow your joints to move through full range of motion. Maintaining muscle flexibility increases your athletic performance, prevents injury, decreases soreness and hastens rehabilitation following an injury. As you age, muscles become stiff which will slow you down and also cause pain. Stretching daily will help you be more agile as you grow older. What it boils down to is at any age, if you don't stretch your muscles, you won't get full range of motion. Your muscles will become stiff and one bad pull on a muscle, POP, you are sidelined with an injury.
