Maintaining flexibility at work, at the gym or in life doesn’t have to be a stretch
Did you ever notice some people are more flexible, more relaxed with little or no pain, while others have to work at it? Flexibility, however, is not an inherent thing, something you have or you don’t. It is created and is well within individual control if several factors are present. In fact, here are three factors on which flexibility depends and that can be controlled.
Muscle support is more than just stretching
Muscles have many uses but only have two basic functions: contraction and relaxation. All movements are based on these and depend upon proper support. While stretching muscles is helpful when they have been at rest, the frequent need for stretching can be a symptom of a deeper problem.
For muscles to function at all, they have a few base nutritional requirements. The minerals calcium and magnesium in tandem, support the tandem “contract-relax” function proportionately. When present, muscles operate with ease. In deficiency, all motion can be a stretch!
Reduction of the effects of stress on the body
When we think of stress, seldom do we consider flexibility, but the two could not be more related. One reason is that we consider stress to be external and, in reducing it, look to change the environment, rather than our bodies’ reaction to it.
The human body is designed to take on a tremendous amount of stress. Witness the many champion athletes who subject their bodies to tremendous amounts of stress and are perfectly fit. Their flexibility and agility have to do with the mere fact that they are supporting the muscles, bones and nerves with the elements necessary for optimum function.
Yes, exercise is a factor, but is itself a stress on the body. Sitting at a desk for several hours a day is, alike, stress. Mineral nutrition, again supporting the tandem “contract-relax” thing, is paramount. Without it, work or daily life, let alone sports, would be all but impossible.
Posture isn’t just for show
Many of us consider poor posture to be an aesthetic factor of our physique when actually it is a tool to gauge how much stress may be affecting the body and is an index of flexibility. Poor posture indicates the foundational frame and structure is not in-balance and points to an array of sources. One important factor is muscle flexibility.
While the spine and basic structure support them, tight muscles, like rubber bands, can keep the spine and frame out of alignment and balance. And from what we have discussed here, it is likely that some muscular support factor has gone awry. Muscle support is key to good posture, and our posture can tell us when there are deficiencies.
How to have better flexibility and posture too
You can correct your posture and stretch frequently, but if you are not supporting the muscles and basic frame, you may be spinning your wheels.
Considering the basic “contract-relax” function of the muscles, it is clear that supporting such functions would be the most basic way to flexibility. Calcium and magnesium fueling these basic functions, it is wise to ensure proper levels are maintained.
