Flexibility Tips To Improve Mobility – Flexibility is defined as the range of motion around a joint in your body. At BuiltLean, we recommend improving your flexibility by “static” stretching during and after your workouts. Static stretching is the type of stretching where you are stationary as you stretch your muscle. As a warm up, we recommend dynamic stretching, which is an active form of stretching to help prepare your body for a workout. In addition to stretching, improving the quality of your “soft tissues” like muscle and fascia can improve your range of motion and flexibility considerably.
