Flexibility is defined or described as the range of motion, or movement, around a particular joint or set of joints. In layman’s terms, how far we can reach, bend or turn (move). When improving flexibility is the goal, the muscles and their fascia (sheath) should be the major focus of flexibility training. While bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and skin do contribute to overall flexibility, we have limited control over these factors
Stretching, related to physical health and fitness, is the method of placing particular parts of the body into a position that will lengthen, or elongate, the muscles and associated surrounding soft tissues. Undertaking a regular stretching program a number of changes begin to occur within the body and specifically within the muscles themselves. Other tissues that begin to adapt to the stretching process include the fascia, tendons, ligaments, skin and scar tissue
