Say Goodbye to Morning Muscle Stiffness

Make Muscle Stiffness a Thing of The Past

Do you wake up every morning with a stiff back, knees that don't want to bend and hips that feel like they are made of iron?

As we age, muscle stiffness occurs due to three major causes. The first is simply as we age our muscles lose their natural elasticity. 

The second is how we are constantly sitting down. We sit at our desks, commuting, watching TV, eating out, and all the other ways we spend our time causes adaptive shortening of our muscles. This results in a poor range of movement of the joints, decreased muscle flexibility and a sensation of stiffness. I call this "Office Back". 

The third cause of muscle stiffness as we age is our bodies produce less synovial fluid. This means our joints aren't as lubricated as we get older which can cause repeated stress issues within the joint itself, such as osteoarthritis. 

There is, however, a remedy for all these problems, in the form of a daily dynamic stretch routine. 

Stretch Your Way to a More Youthful Body

Daily stretching (of the dynamic movement kind) increases muscle elasticity and helps the promotion of synovial fluid to help increase joint lubrication. The outcome is you feel looser in the joints, you begin to move more freely and consequently, feel younger. 

In this weeks coaching video I reveal 5 simple exercises (to be completed daily) to help remedy all the problems I mentioned to help leave you energised, lighter on your feet and feeling more youthful. 

I hope you enjoy the video and get value from the content. If you do, please like the video and subscribe to my YouTube channel. Your support really helps the channel grow so I can continue helping you and others.
