4 exercises to strengthen your flexibility

When exercise becomes a means to achieve physical and mental health, flexibility becomes an essential element to achieve it; since it avoids injuries and pains, in addition that it provides to the body a greater agility and resistance.

Flexibility is a capacity that is lost from birth. Women have higher levels of this than men, this is because their joints are more relaxed and allow more movement, plus they have less muscle tone which contributes.

Many sports require flexibility, therefore GetQoralHealth offers you four exercises that will help you strengthen it, especially in the legs.

1. Isquiotibial. Standing with your legs together, lower your torso with your back straight until you touch your feet with your hands. First towards the front, then to one side and then to the other side. Perform 3 sets of 30 movements each.

2. Buttocks . This exercise is very similar to the squat. The movement is as if you were about to sit, but with the legs separated at the same distance between the shoulders and with the hands resting on the upper part of the thighs. Lower with the right back. Perform 3 sets of 15 repetitions each.

2. Scissors. It is performed lying on your back. Lift one leg without bending it, or tilting your torso up. Take the leg that is up with your hands and pull it even closer to the body. The movement is done by lifting one leg, then the other without touching the ground with them, at any time. Perform 3 sets of 3 to 5 minutes each.

3. Column Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, raise your arms above your head, put your hands together and bring your body back. Thus, following the natural movements of your body you can relax muscles and joints.
