According to recent research, the best way to gain flexibility in a muscle is to:
- Hold a stretch
- For at least 1 minute
- 5 times per week
And the interesting thing is that you don’t get much more flexible if you hold it for more than 1 minute!
When it comes to stretching, frequency is more important than intensity. And it makes sense: you wouldn’t expect to have minty-fresh breath if you brushed your teeth only once for 15 minutes every week 🥴
In other words, if you’re going to yoga once a week and don’t do any stretching the rest of the time, you’re robbing yourself of some serious flexibility gainzzz.
This is why I give you homework when we work together 1-on-1! We meet once per week, and I send you home with the best (short) routine to do on your own until we next meet. You get the support and accountability your body deserves.
