Strengthen and lengthen through your neck, shoulders, and back, increasing the range of motion of your torso in all directions. Especially important for those of us who spend long hours sitting in front of screens, this workout also helps reduce aches and tension, and improve your posture to support better breathing throughout your day – leaving you with energy that lasts all day and helping you burn more calories even while at rest.
Stretching is useful at any age. It increases your range of motion, keeps muscles limber, improves posture and balance, and helps prevent falls. As you age, stretching becomes even more important. Your joints become less flexible over time. Inflexibility puts a crimp in daily activities, making it harder to walk, raise your arms overhead, or turn your head while backing up the car. It undermines balance, too, which can cause life-altering falls.
The Oxycise flexibility series utilizes both active and static stretching, warming up your muscles so that they’re more receptive to lengthening out. Everyone can benefit from stretches that release tension, increase functional range of motion, and improve comfort in everyday life.
