Flexibility / Stretching
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.
Stretching is recommended by the Canada’s Physical Activity Guide to Healthy Living 4 to 7 days per week and 10 minutes per day.
Benefits of Stretching
  • Reduces stress in the exercising muscles and releases tension developed during the workout.
  • Assists with posture by balancing the tension placed across the joint by the muscles that cross it. Proper posture minimizes stress and maximizes the strength of all joint movements.
  • Reduces the risk of injury during exercise and daily activities because muscles are more pliable.
  • Improves performance of everyday activities as well as performance in exercise and sport.
