WHEN SHOULD YOU WORK ON YOUR FLEXIBILITY?

Recommended Posts

Flexibility is necessary for people of all ages and body types. It’s never too late to start working on your flexibility. Being inflexible can cause injury when you try to move one of your joints through a certain range of motion such as reaching up for something.

A lot of people tend to injure their lower backs when attempting to lift items so make sure stretches for your lower back is covered as well as following the correct procedure when lifting.

You should aim to work on your flexibility every morning and night. If you’re not planning to workout, then you can do a few static stretches. This is particularly important for office workers who tend to be seated and hunched over their computer throughout the day.

Just a few stretches will help to relieve those stiff joints and muscle cramps that tend to occur when they suddenly get up or rush for their bus/train.

Many people like to do some yoga just after they wake up in the mornings as it helps to relieve the stiffness of muscles brought on during sleep and it is relaxing too! For fitness people, on workout days or before you play sports, you should aim to warm your body up with dynamic stretches and then perform some static stretches after your workout.

Although being flexible is very beneficial, it is important to not overdo it as too much flexibility can cause the tissue around the joints to soften and that can also cause injury.

So it is best to just work on your flexibility for about 15 minutes each day or every other day. If you are stuck on which exercises are best for flexibility, then check out my article ‘Top 10 Best Flexibility Exercises’ and incorporate some of these into your stretching programme.
