Flexibility and Strengthening Muscles

Flexibility and Strengthening Muscles

Flexibility can be a good and bad thing. Certainly, it helps. It helps in a woman when she’s going to have a baby. It helps with the joints, the ligaments and the tendons over time. It keeps you from being stressed. However, the problem with flexibility is it also can make you more likely to have a knee injury or a problem associated with it. Flexibility needs to be controlled, in a sense. In other words, you can stretch, which is good for you, but you have to strengthen the muscles. If you strengthen the muscles around particular joints that are very flexible, you increase their stability and strength and you decrease the chances of some sort of ligament tear.

Counteracting Loss of Muscle Mass

Counteracting Loss of Muscle Mass

Whether we want to admit it or not, as we get older, we begin to lose muscle mass. There are certain places it happens the most over time. We can lose muscle mass in places like our arms, shoulders and legs. It is a natural part of the aging process. That’s the bad news. Here’s the good news…it is also important that exercise and strength training can somehow defeat this. In other words, the more you exercise, and the more you develop muscles, the more you increase your basic metabolic rate and your ability to burn calories. It will keep you strong and maintain your flexibility.
