Flexibility is the red headed stepchild of exercise. Think about it: When you’re pressed for time but determined to get a full workout, what do you skip? Stretching, duh! But you really should be saying dumb, because that’s what it is to skip your stretches.
Most people forget that fitness is a 3-part affair: Cardio, resistance training, and flexibility. That’s a real shame, because stretching can: -Lead to better posture -Prevent injuries -Enhance performance -Ease sore muscles -Increase blood and nutrient to tissue -Reduce lower back pain -Increase muscle circulation
