FLEXIBILITY EXERCISE (STRETCHING)

Time to loosen up those joints and muscles. Are you flexible? Sometimes one may forget the importance of stretching and properly warming up before any form of activity.

By warming your muscles and body up, this enables you to get more benefits out of your exercises or activities you choose to engage in.

Joint ROM (Range of Motion) or flexibility can be improved across all age groups by engaging in flexibility exercises.

Did you know? That ROM around a joint is improved immediately after performing flexibility exercise and shows chronic improvement after about 3-4 wk of regularly stretching at a frequency of at least 2-3 times a wk.

Your posture and balance can also be improved be stretching regularly.

Remember:

Warm-up, train, cool down, and stretch.

Have a great workout,

Healthy and the Brain
