The Vibe #39: Can you regain flexibility after 40?

Read Time: 3 Minutes

"Can you regain flexibility after 40?"
Great question!

I get this one a lot.

The short answer is -
absolutely!

You can regain and maintain flexibility at any age.
Let me explain...

As we get older, it's totally normal for our bodies to get stiffer.

Our muscles and joints just don't move as freely as when we were younger.

Collagen and Elastin start to break down,
so our tissues lose that springiness.

But just because it's common, doesn't mean it's inevitable.

The good news is there are tons of things you can do to maintain and restore flexibility.

With some dedicated stretching, mobility exercises, yoga, you can keep your joints healthy and your muscles elastic.

This makes everyday tasks easier and more comfortable.

You'll have an easier time playing with the grandkids or picking up stuff you dropped.

Here are 4 routines you can try, that will improve your flexibility and mobility:

🟢 Yoga

My personal favorite!
Poses like downward dog, yogi squat, and butterfly pose lengthen tight muscles.

🟢 Flexibility flows

Moving from stretch to stretch warm up the muscles and joints. 

Try this mini stretch flow >>

🟢 Mobility Flows

Moving through a sequence of mobility drills opens up the body.

🟢 Foam Rolling

Using a foam roller on major muscle groups loosens tissues and increases blood flow.

The key is consistency.

You gotta make mobility work part of your regular routine -
like brushing your teeth!

Don't just let your body turn into a rusted tin man.
Take control and move in ways that feel good.

Stay active and have a wonderful day ✨
