The bamboo that bends is stronger than the oak that resists. -Japanese proverb
In my 30 years as a personal trainer the one fact I am sure of is that flexibility equals longevity and quality of life. When you invest a little time everyday to stretch your muscles you are contributing to better posture, preventing muscle atrophy, reducing and in some cases eliminating pain, maintaining weight, improving strength, overall energy and wellbeing. Stretching can be uncomfortable so it’s important to know your limitation and slowly increase you range over time. If you want to look and feel 10 years younger then incorporate a simple, easy and fun routine. I’ve attached a video link to a 3:00 minute routine I designed in 2010. It is easy, fun and invigorating. All ages can do it. Enjoy getting younger.
