As I’ve become more experienced in training I have learned the true value of being flexible. This is something I work on more than ever today, as a means to keep going and enhance my results. There are many reasons why getting flexible is imperative, 3 of which I’ve shared below.
Range Of Motion
Sustaining your range of motion or improving it if necessary will allow for improved hypertrophy. To work any muscle adequately for growth there must be sufficient load on the muscle through a significant enough range of motion, which is why increasing the flexibility around a joint is important.
Improving flexibility can be a direct benefit to strength, partially for the same reasons as given above. With more flexibility the elasticity of the muscle increases which can help with resisting a weight across a wider range of motion without such risk. Some of the strongest and most flexible people on the planet are gymnasts; the proof is always in the results!
Even the most hardcore athletes understand that one of the best ways to preserve longevity is to get flexible and stay that way. Injuries often occur and thrive when there are significant imbalances between muscles and poor mobility available at any given joint. Have you ever had a painful shoulder or knee issues? It is likely that simply working on anterior shoulder flexibility and hip mobility could fix lots of these problems!
