At Junkyard Training, we aim to support you in reaching your fitness goals whether that be aesthetic, functional, or both. One training area that we feel doesn’t get enough love is flexibility. Being flexible can help you achieve a greater range of motion and support muscle building without injury, but it can also just make daily life and daily movement easier. Consider how improving your flexibility can improve your daily life in these ways.
Being flexible can improve your physical health in many ways. Flexibility exercises can help to improve your range of motion, reduce muscle stiffness and soreness, and prevent injuries. Improved flexibility can also help to reduce joint pain and stiffness.
Being flexible can help to increase your energy and vitality by promoting better circulation and oxygen flow throughout your body. This can help to reduce fatigue and increase your overall sense of well-being.
Flexibility exercises can help to improve your posture and balance, which can reduce your risk of falls and injuries. Improved posture can also help to reduce muscle tension and pain in the neck, shoulders, and back.
Flexibility exercises can help to reduce stress and anxiety by promoting relaxation and mindfulness. By focusing on your breath and the present moment, you can reduce feelings of overwhelm and anxiety.
From the time we were infants, every new move we discovered was celebrated. Pushups, crawling, walking, and running. But by the time we started exploring the world by climbing on things, most of us were told to stop. By training your flexibility, you can regain your childlike wonder for exploring the world. Who says you shouldn’t climb trees and rocks as an adult? And at the very least, being flexible can keep you young by making daily movements easier.
If you are interested in a dedicated space that is conducive to training flexibility, gaining muscle, and rehab and recovery, look no further than our Junkyard Training facility. If you have never stopped in, do so today. We would love to show you around.
