Flexibility is a very important thing to keep as a person ages. Younger people tend to be more pliable and in turn become more resistant to injury. An older person has less joint movement and tighter connective tissue. A lot of these issues can be slowed and reversed to some degree. Muscle regeneration tools and range of motion tools have come a long way in the past couple of years. The availability of places teaching yoga and tai chi are more accessible as well.
Here are some things that keep your body running like it is supposed to:
Trigger Point Grid
The Trigger point Grid is a next level foam roller that helps the muscles regenerate after a workout as well as function properly during a workout.
GoFit Stretch Rope
The GoFit stretch rope helps do an effective stretch without the help of a partner. This tool is portable so you can take it to the gym with you!
The BH S300 stretch machine is a gravity assisted flexibility tool. This style is very popular with Golfers and chiropractors. You can get a great stretch without getting on the ground!
The True Stretch is the ultimate flexibility tool. The TRUE Stretch was developed by internationally renowned physical therapist Gary Gray and is used by a number of top professional and collegiate teams as well as many professional athletes and their personal trainers. It is also featured at many of the top resort spas around the globe because TRUE Stretch is the most effective piece of equipment available for maximizing flexibility.
