Your body is dynamic, and it's designed to move. To ensure you keep moving at your best longer, here’s what you need to know about the balance of strength and posture and flexibility.
Both strength and flexibility play a significant role in how your posture develops. For instance, having both a strong and flexible core helps the body to dynamically adapt to every environment. The spine is not only supported but also moves well, reducing the possibility of injury or pain. While it’s true that "perfect" postures may not exist, improving our strength, flexibility, and ergonomics goes a long way towards improvement.
Why it Matters:
Your body is dynamic, and it's designed to move, but over time it may feel a bit less dynamic than it used to! Getting into a wellness routine that includes exercises that focus on strength and flexibility is a smart way to keep your body feeling young while promoting good posture - a true win-win. Here’s why. Strengthening exercises can help develop proper support for your joints and decrease overall postural stress. Incorporating stretches and exercises that focus on flexibility then help your body maintain the ability to move through its full range of motion.
