We are all different when it comes to our flexibility and range of motion. While some of us can bend in half, others can barely put their socks on in the morning. The way your joints move and the length of the muscles that cross these joints will determine your flexibility. There are simple exercises and massages that can retain and improve how flexible a person is, but there many other factors that will determine someone’s range of motion too. Some of these factors will be something we can’t control, such as our age, gender, joint structure, connective tissue and proprioceptors in the muscle fibers. However, there are many habits that will be in our control, which affect our flexibility and range of motion. Here are 5 of them.
