Stiff joints and tight muscles tend to come hand in hand with getting older, but it doesn’t have to be that way! In fact, a few daily stretches might be the only thing you need to achieve a whole new level of flexibility, improve your balance and even strengthen your muscles.
As the days get cooler, it’s super important to warm up before stretching to make sure you don’t pull too hard on any of your muscles. You should also avoid bouncing or holding your breath, and always remember that stretching should be gentle and if you feel any kind of pain, listen to your body and stop right away!
