What is Flexibility?
Flexibility is the ability of your muscles and joints to move effectively and deeply through an unrestricted and pain-free range of motion! More simply, flexibility can be defined as, how far you can reach to touch your toes, or the ability to go deeper into some exercises, or even, to reach way back to scratch an itch on your back. Basically, it’s the ability to move your own body freely!
The degree of flexibility you experience varies from person to person, as well as between your joints and muscle groups. It is a result of many different factors such as anatomical structure, genetics, age, gender, history of injury, and activity levels. The good news is that if you are feeling that you’re not very flexible, there are easy and simple ways to improve it!
