Basically, flexibility is the range of motion that allows your muscles or muscle groups to stretch. The larger this ROM, the more flexible you are and the more you relieve your joints and tendons, which are stressed during sports or just in everyday life.
Reason enough to focus on flexibility training, but it also feels really good. And Nike Master Trainer and Yoga Instructor Traci Copeland’s Flexibility Flow is no exception.
“I’m giving you some tools you can use yourself so you can help your body feel great and move better,” Copeland says of each component in this 15-minute routine. One thing to keep in mind when it comes to flexibility training, “This is less about speed and more about control,” Copeland says in the video, “and allowing yourself to go deeper each time.”
Taking time to start your day with this yoga routine would certainly be a helpful way to wake up your body, but as Copeland also notes, these moves are “great anytime, especially after a long day of sitting where you… Your muscles compress your spine, or if you’ve been on your feet all day. Throughout the course, Copeland will help you stretch your inner thighs, hips, hamstrings and lower back as well as your shoulders – all areas that tend to be tight due to a sedentary lifestyle.
When you’re ready, grab a mat and press play on the video above. Don’t forget to breathe, center yourself and enjoy.
