 Flexibility is an important component of health-related fitness, but flexibility training is often neglected, even among regular exercisers. Flexibility describes the ability of a joint and surrounding muscles to move through a specific range of motion with ease and without pain. Lifting weights promotes lean muscle mass, and aerobic exercise such as running improves the function of the heart and lungs, but what can flexibility training do for you? Here are a few of the benefits:

  • Improved efficiency in completing activities of daily living such as bending, reaching, squatting and stepping over things
  • Better posture
  • Reduced risk of injury (especially those related to sport and physical activity)
