Why is Stretching So Vital | Health and Fitness Beaufort

Hey everybody! Andrew here, coach at EarthFIT. I’m here to address the elephant in the room that we all are experiencing every single day, whether we know it or not – joint pain, whether it’s an injury 15 years ago, whether it’s sitting there just popped up yesterday or something that we may get into later on as you may start feeling sciatica, headaches, shoulder pain, rotator cuffs are all messed up, ACL’s, MCL’s, knee pains, plantar fasciitis in the feet, whatever it may be low back pain in general, I’m here to tell you I put together a series of videos coming up on how to get stretching at home, how to work on your mobility at home so that we can start the process. Start it, start the process of feeling better and getting a better quality of life and better posture, better technique when we’re coming in here, working on our fitness. 

Why is Stretching So Vital

Repetitive movements and postures all day – Am I doing texting, computer work, golfing, fishing, standing up, moving boxes, whatever, whatever it may be playing with our grandkids, sleeping. We have bad postures throughout the entire day, all day, 24 hours a day, repetitively causing overactive muscle groups to pull on the joint improperly causing really bad joint mechanics because on the other side of that joint is going to be the opposing antagonistic muscle group 9 times out of 10, that is weakened and lengthened. So if they’re not getting the neuro drive in the activation and the strength and the stability it needs along with other things, this is a very basic explanation. And the other side of that joint is overactive in tight and pulling too much. Your joint mechanics are going to be off, your joint alignment is going to be off. You’re going to have pain. You’re going to be pressing down on nerves, soft tissues. You’re going to be pulling on tendons and improperly moving those tendons and ligaments causing sprains and strains and micro tears. Not going to be good, this is not going to get better if you don’t do anything about it. So watch my videos coming up on the content. I’ll see you guys in here for more strength and conditioning, more fitness, more health and more motivation. Let’s go.
