At the end of every training session I incorporate 10 minutes of flexibility exercises. Flexibility is needed to perform everyday activities withy relative ease. To get out of bed, lift children and sweep the floor, we need flexibility.
Flexibility tends to deteriorate with age, often due to a sedentary lifestyle. Without adequate flexibility daily activities become more difficult to perform. Over time, we create body movements and posture habits that can lead to reduced mobility of joints and compromised body positions. Staying active and stretching regularly helps prevent this loss of mobility, which ensure independence as we age.
