You ever hear about the first thing that fit people supposedly lose?
We’re told that it’s not their speed or muscular strength. It’s not their power.
It’s their flexibility.
Is this the unmitigated truth?
I say it depends upon the person.
Some people haven’t enjoyed a day of decent flexibility since they began sitting in classrooms, and that’s a pity. Others had flexibility earlier in life, then lost it through neglect or from injuries that never healed properly.
Contrary to popular expectations, I haven’t lost flexibility over the years. In fact, I continue to improve.
There’s are reasons that my flexibility continues to improve. First, I continue to engage in activities that keep my body loose. Second, I avoid activities that tighten and shorten the muscles and tendons of the body. Third, I continue to work on my flexibility with the exercises highlighted in Combat Stretching.
Recently, just as I explained in the advertisement I wrote for this program many moons ago, someone else challenged me to prove I could do the splits. I got down on the ground and did them for the guy, then I knocked him loopy by doing a few other stretches he ass-umed I couldn’t do.
I taught the guy to never underestimate the flexibility of el Furecat.
I told the guy, “Just because your muscles are tense and tight doesn’t mean mine need to be.”
Here’s the bottom line: If you do a little something each day to keep yourself mobile, agile and flexible – you’ll have fun shocking those as you make what you do look so freakin easy.
’tis the truth.
