Flexibility Training

Flexibility training is often an undervalued component of conditioning. While most people appreciate cardiovascular and strength training for their role in helping lose weight, build muscle, and get fit, the benefits of flexibility training are less immediate. As the population ages however, more people are learning to appreciate the rewards of stretching. Staying limber can offset age-related stiffness, improve athletic performance, and optimize functional movement in daily life.

Research shows that flexibility training can develop and maintain range of motion and may help prevent and treat injury. The American College of Sports Medicine has even added flexibility training to its general exercise recommendations, advising that stretching exercises for the major muscle groups be performed two to three days per week.
