When it comes to physical goals, flexibility isn’t exactly at the top of the list, is it? No, it’s usually about broader shoulders, bigger arms or shredded abs. And while those are great, if you can’t easily touch your toes or struggle to put your shoes on in cramped environments, then you’re overlooking a vital part of your health. And even for active guys, neglecting your flexibility may be hindering results in the gym. Rigorous workouts combined with the back-breaking posture from the typical work grind can stifle strength gains and even prep you for an injury if you’re not careful. The good news, according to experts, is that it’s not difficult to improve your flexibility. You simply have to keep these guidelines in mind going forward. You’ll be bending and twisting (not to mention lifting more and standing taller) in no time.
