Recently, people have been asking me about the importance of stretching as part of their workout regimes. Stretching is often ignored, when it should be placed on the top of your list of workout routine. Most people lead sedentary lifestyles. That’s even true in NYC, where often your mode of transportation is your legs, because many of us spend the day at a desk, hunched over a computer. This can cause muscle imbalances, which leads to a compromised posture.When your posture is compromised, movement in both daily life and in exercise can lead to injury, because your body isn’t in optimal alignment. Common postural distortions include: “rounding” and elevation of the shoulders , protrusion of the head, and the tightening of the hips, as the glutes (butt muscles) become weak. Proper flexibility training can help eliminate these distortions. Today, we’re going to learn about the 3 different types of flexibility training.
