improve muscle elasticity
Flexibility is defined as the range of motion between the bones of the muscle and tendons and also part of the F.I.T.T. principles. It is the most often forgotten and left out part of an exercise routine.
This form of exercise helps to improve the body’s muscle elasticity and helps to give the feeling of muscle control throughout the body. Flexibility also helps in the aid of preventing muscle cramps, tightness, as well as muscle pulls.
Stretching is the number one exercise to increase the distance in the joint between two bones and should be done after the body has reached at least 60 percent of its heart rate.
