A daily exercise to increase flexibility!
A flexible person will have more ease to practicing a sport, as they will be able to perform more movements and their joints will be stronger. In addition, in everyday life, you will be able to perform more common gestures than a person whose body is more rigid. Picking up an object on the ground, lifting something... things that may cause injuries if you make a wrong move. A flexible body implies flexible arteries, which are important in reducing the risk of having a cardiovascular disease. Finally, flexibility helps maintain good posture and therefore, prevents back problems.
How can you increase flexibility?
To gain flexibility, there is a simple exercise you can perform. If you practice it daily, in the evening or when you wake up, for example, you will see results very quickly.
Start by testing your flexibility. With your legs parallel to your pelvis, bring your hands to the ground, keeping your back straight. The closer your back is to your legs, the more flexible you are. Conversely, if this position seems uncomfortable or you feel the need to bend your legs, it means that you can stand to increase your flexibility.
Practice this exercise every day, taking your time and breathing. After a month, you will quickly see the benefits.
