Flexibility describes Unlock Your Hip Flexors Review the range of movement possible at various joints. This part of fitness is often the most over looked, but is extremely important. Flexibility is the ability to move the body's joints through a full range of motion. You need a certain amount of flexibility to live a healthy and functional life. Basic movements such as tying your shoes or putting on a shirt can become very difficult if you lack flexibility. The best way to improve your flexibility is to do static stretches daily. Static stretches mean you slowly move the muscle to its stretching point and hold that position for a designated amount of time. It is recommended that a stretch is held for 20- 30 seconds. Seniors should hold a stretch for 60 seconds. Dynamic stretching involves a similar position but is done in a slow controlled manner. Ballistic stretching involves bobbing, bouncing, or jerky movements that use the body's momentum. This type of stretching is a more advanced type of stretching and could cause injury if you exceed the stretchable limits of the tissues involved. It is recommended that beginner exerciser's, children and people with muscle imbalances use static stretching in their flexibility routines. Athletes are more likely to use dynamic and ballistic stretches. Doing dynamic movements before exercise is helpful if you do not have any muscle imbalances. Static stretching should be left to after the workout and done if there are muscle imbalances present.
