When was your last tune up? So many people walk around with a hunched back, shoulders rolled forward, and low back tightness. Most have no idea that their poor posture is due to tight muscles such as chest, shoulders, hip flexors, hamstrings, glutes, and many more. Whatever your condition may be, tight muscles in those areas are making it impossible to get better.
WAKE UP PEOPLE! It’s time to stretch. Your body is your daily machine. It gets you to work, runs all day so that you can breathe, eat, and think. Then it works extra hard to exercise, elevate the heart rate, burn calories, and use muscle. This machine that helps you live and thrive each day needs “Tune Ups”! A “Tune Up” for the body is stretching the muscles, tendons and joints. When you neglect this “Tune Up” for months at a time, it will be like a late oil change; It only hurts a new car a little, but as that car ages and continues to get late oil changes, it will begin to run poorly.
Stretching and foam rolling once a month is not good enough! Your body is your machine for life, no replacement! Lucky are some, who will get a new heart, kidney, or liver if that someday fails. There is no replacing your spinal muscles, quads, hamstrings, and gluteals. People can now replace their knees and hips, yet it is painful for many years before that happens and your quality of life is compromised.
Be good to your body, it’s good to you! Stretch!
