    Default Stretching May Be The Undervalued Key To Youth

    February 8 2017

    It doesn’t matter if you’re 35, 55, 75 or 95 years old. The actual number of years you’ve spent in your body is far less important than how old you feel. And you absolutely don’t need to feel your age.
    As we get older, many of us focus on keeping our bodies fit through intense exercise like high-intensity interval training, cardio or strength training with weights. But there is one form of fitness that often goes by the wayside—stretching. With all of the exercise Americans are doing, whether it is biking, running, swimming or Crossfit—our muscles are becoming very contracted, inflexible and overworked. We are simply not stretching enough, and it is making many of us feel ten years older than we should.

    This is a programme I watched a couple of weeks ago on ABC TV (Australia). The YouTube video is poor quality, but there are other bits and pieces available online. From what I remember, stretching was more beneficial than exercise. What's more surprising, the stretching in this video is being done by someone else - passive stretching! I hope you are able to view it - the two part programme 'How to stay Young' was very interesting. Though really it should have been titled 'How to stay Healthy while Ageing'.
