Stretching or engaging in flexibility exercises is an under-appreciated and underutilized means to improve the quality of your life! Here are five reasons to do it:

  2. Superior muscle health
  3. Better athletic performance
  4. Greater range of motion
  5. Improved circulation

Yoga is a great example of a flexibility practice I really enjoy. It’s a great way to get in both stretching and strength training.
