Flexibility is one aspect of fitness that is typically neglected in favor of strength or endurance – especially when it comes to guys. But flexibility is also necessary if we want to build strength more quickly, recover in less time, prevent injury, and maintain our physical fitness. It also ensures healthy, pain-free joints, and helps us stay active as we get older. If it hasn’t already, then sooner or later a lack flexibility will catch up with you in the form of pain, discomfort or injury.
Many people are concerned about injury, especially if they’ve experienced it before. Being injured means not being able to do the things you physically enjoy doing, and it can be a powerful feeling that dissuades us from doing any exercise at all. But the only way to prevent injury is to exercise – you just need to make sure you’re doing the right type of low-impact, muscle-building exercises that have a low-risk of injury and help to injury-proof your body in the process.
Posture is a huge issue because most of what we do during the day leads to poor posture. We hunch over our phones, our desks, while driving, and then at home when we sit on the couch. Improving your posture is part strength, and part practice, but it can yield tremendous returns if you better posture a regular habit.
