Whether you attend the gym or sit in the office daily; you probably have tight muscles and may know little about flexibility. Do you experience neck or back pain? Do you feel aches and tightness when moving your arms and legs? Many people are unable to perform simple movements properly and thousands are suffering from back and neck pain. Please keep reading; your flexibility is more important than you realize.
Flexibility- the ability of a joint to move through its full range of motion.
Remember, our muscles are attached to the bones. When the muscles become short and tight they pull on the bones. They can literally pull the bones out of position. When muscles become short and tight they will prevent us from moving as freely as we need to. How many times have you stood up after sitting for a long period and you find it difficult to straighten up? Our muscles become short and tight for a lot of reasons…mainly sitting to much and lack of use.
Poor flexibility means more difficulty when performing your daily activities and can cause joint stiffness, muscle tightness, lower back pain and other postural, and health related problems. A study posted in the American Journal of Physiology has associated poor flexibility with arterial stiffening. Arterial stiffening is called arteriosclerosis and it influences how hard your heart has to work to pump blood through your body. Myocardial infarction (heart attack) and stroke are both a direct consequence of atherosclerosis.
FOUNDATION TRAINING is a great remedy for improving flexibility.
Flexibility is essential for keeping our bodies and our health. Every move we make requires requires neuro, muscular and joint activation. As an aging active adult myself I spend time everyday doing a little Foundation Training as well as teaching clients the FT way.
FOUNDATION TRAINING improves the human body in so many areas.
FOUNDATION TRAINING improves the way you breathe, improves lung and diaphragmatic capacity, posture, balance, flexibility and strength…which leads to much better mobility.
Learn FT! It’s on of those things you just need to do to really “get” what I am talking about!
Move better…feel better with Foundation Training!
