Flexibility : the quality of bending easily without breaking

Did that make you smile? I imagine that after 19.1, there was  limited flexibility in the legs and maybe, shoulders and back. Did you stretch after completing 19.1? Or did you just go home after scraping yourself off the floor?

Flexibility is something that is critical to everyone. It allows us to move without fear of pain or hurting ourselves. Flexibility and range of motion are a function of each other – without flexibility there is poor range of motion. And each joint in the body has its own specific range of motion – shoulders, huge range of motion, ankles, not so much. So by working on your range of motion you will improve your flexibility. (Think ankle and shoulder flexibility for dumbbell overhead squats.)

Just as last week you needed endurance for 19.1, maybe this week there will be a movement in 19.2 which requires good flexibility. So get stretching – static and dynamic.
