TDD 14: Super Simple Hack to Become More Flexible

JCF_YT Thumbnail Daily Dose 14(1)

Stretching is a good way to relax.

But we might want to step that up when we apply the right way of breathing.

Because no matter how much we stretch and we’re not breathing properly

We just go back to being as stiff as we were before.

Whenever we’re stressed our muscles react by becoming really really tight.

We develop cramps, we become susceptible to injury.

And if you’ve been following my videos,

You’ll know that I’ve talked a lot about the nervous system and how it

Affects every single part of our body.

Our nervous system regulates our muscles and how tight they are

And breathing is good way to help balance the nervous system 

What we can do is something I’m a huge fan of called Box Breathing Technique

It simply is a routine of inhale-hold-exhale-hold at 4 seconds in each step

And repeated three times or more. 

Try standing up tall on the inhale and the first hold

And on the exhale we bend from our waist, 

Keeping our back straight as we gently reach for our toes.

We’ll notice a massive difference if we apply this breathing technique 

We can also apply box breathing in other ways we stretch our muscles. 

Hope this helped you out, lads. 

Cheers.
