One of my least favorite things to do when exercising or playing a sport is warming-up or stretching. I’ve played a lot of Basketball, Baseball, and Softball over the last 40 years and the joke among my family and teammates has always been that I would show up one or two minutes before game time and go directly from my car to the playing field. For some reason I just can’t do this anymore….I’m being told it’s because I’m getting older.
Increasing flexibility is one of the ways for me to improve my Fitness. Probably the biggest reason that I haven’t enjoyed stretching is that I’ve always thought that my flexibility is very limited. One of my favorite TV shows is “Big Bang Theory”, here is a scene from the show that epitomizes how I’ve always felt about my flexibility.
