The Many Benefits of Stretching & Flexibility
There’s a common expression in life – ‘use it or lose it.’
This certainly applies when it comes to stretching the body.
Unfortunately however, many people avoid it, execute it poorly or don’t do enough of it. The body relies on being stretched, much like a car needs regularly servicing.
Here are some of the benefits of stretching:
- Improves flexibility – Being flexible is beneficial for everyday life. It allows you to push your body beyond its comfort zone, thus increasing your overall physical ability.
- Improves the range of motion in your joints - This provides better balance, which will help keep you mobile and less susceptible to falls.
- Improves circulation – Stretching increases the blood flow to your muscles, thus improving your circulation.
- Relieves stress – Stretching relaxes tense muscles that often accompany stress. This helps relax the mind as well.
- Injury prevention and recovery – Stretching helps condition the muscles and joints, thus helping to prevent injuries and reduce recovery time.
- Improves posture and technique– Stretching prevents muscles and joints from seizing up and improves elasticity, allowing better posture and technique.And it doesn’t just end there…
- Increased length of relaxed muscles
- Increased power and elasticity of our muscles
- Increased endurance and metabolism
- Assist in achieving better coordination, muscle control and proper technique in sport
- Enable your body to perform more with less energy
|31 Ways Trampoline Jogging/Rebounding can improve your Well Being
- Rebounding strengthens the heart and other muscles in the body so that they work more efficiently.
- Rebounding provides an increased G-force (gravitational load), which strengthens the musculoskeletal systems.
- Rebounding protects the joints from the chronic fatigue and impact delivered by exercising on hard surfaces.
- Rebounding helps manage body composition and improves muscle-to-fat ratio.
- Rebounding aids lymphatic circulation by stimulating the millions of one-way valves in the lymphatic system.
- Rebounding establishes a better equilibrium between the oxygen required by the tissues and the oxygen made available.
- Rebounding increases capacity for breathing.
- Rebounding circulates more oxygen to the tissues.
- Rebounding results in better mental performance, with keener learning processes.
- Rebounding tends to reduce the level to which the arterial pressures rise during exertion.
- Rebounding can lessen the time during which blood pressure remains abnormal after severe activity.
- Rebounding increases the functional activity of the red bone marrow in the production of red blood cells.
- Rebounding decreases the volume of blood pooling in the veins of the cardiovascular system preventing chronic edema.
- Rebounding improves resting metabolic rate; therefore more calories are burned for hours after exercise.
- Rebounding causes muscles to perform work in circulating fluids through the body to lighten the heart's load.
- Rebounding encourages collateral circulation by increasing the capillary count in the muscles and decreasing the distance between the capillaries and the target cells.
- Rebounding lowers circulating cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
- Rebounding lowers low-density lipoprotein (bad) in the blood and increases high-density lipoprotein (good) holding off the incidence of coronary artery disease.
- Rebounding promotes tissue repair.
- Rebounding for longer than 20 minutes at a moderate intensity increases the mitochondria count within the muscle cells, essential for endurance.
- Rebounding adds to the alkaline reserve of the body, which may be of significance in an emergency requiring prolonged effort.
- Rebounding improves coordination between the proprioceptors in the joints, the transmission of nerve impulses to and from the brain, transmission of nerve impulses and responsiveness of the muscle fibers.
- Rebounding improves the brain’s responsiveness to the vestibular apparatus within the inner ear, thus improving balance.
- Rebounding offers relief from neck and back pains, headaches, and other pain caused by lack of exercise.
- Rebounding enhances digestion and elimination processes.
- Rebounding allows for deeper and easier relaxation and sleep.
- Rebounding can curtail fatigue and menstrual discomfort for women.
- Rebounding minimizes the number of colds, allergies, digestive disturbances, and abdominal problems.
- Rebounding tends to slow down atrophy in the aging process.
- Rebounding is an effective form of exercise by which the user gains a sense of control and an improved self image.
- Rebounding is Fun!
Increase your energy with Tibetan Rites
The Five Tibetan Rites are said to be over 2500 years old and originated as a form of yoga.
These are not your typical yoga poses, these rites are about movement and are meant to flow together at a moderate to quick pace.
It is widely believed that they are a key to prolonged youth that has been so sought after throughout history.
It may come as a shock to hear that five exercises done daily taking no more than 20 minutes to complete can have such a profound impact on your life, health, vitality and appearance, but that is precisely what these rites can do if practiced daily.
There are indeed varying tales and theories surrounding the history of the Five Rites. As it stands,Peter Kedler was in communication with a man known as Colonel Bradford. Bradford, it is stated, traveled to Tibet in search of the monastery he believed held the secret of youth, which he first learned of years before while in India. In Tibet, he located the group of lamas that he preached held the secret of youth. As the lamas explained to him this consisted of five exercises done daily, that operate with the Chakras.
The impact they will have in your life is profound. Consisting of five exercises performed in twenty-one repetitions, some of the benefits claimed by people who practice are as follows:
- increased physical strength
- relieve stress
- improve respiration
- enhance bone mass
- improve digestion
- eliminate fat around midsection
- strengthen core muscles
- heal back pain, strengthen spine
- oxygenate the body
- think more clearly, become more alert and improve memory
- improve sleep quality
- improve eyesight
- reverse signs of physical degeneration, look younger
- arthritis relief
- enhanced sexual performance
- increase endurance and stamina
- attain a great boost in energy of the body and mind
Science: Why the Tibetan Rites Work
Many in the scientific and medical community have come to conclude that meditation and exercise has profound and direct benefits on the seen and unseen forces at work with in our bodies and minds.
Regular deep meditation changes the brain in positive ways, research is now showing. This type of meditation seems to be associated with gamma waves (the electromagnetic rhythm of neurons firing very rapidly in harmony).
“These findings may help explain the beneficial health effects of mindfulness meditation, and suggest, for the first time, an underlying reason why mindfulness meditation programs improve mood and health,” said UCLA psychologist. From the standpoint of neuroscience, meditation can be characterized as a sequence of mental exercises by which one strengthens their command over the workings of their own brain.
In fact, science went as far as to invite the Dalai Lama in 2005 to lecture at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Washington, D.C. In his speech, the spiritual leader of Tibet highlighted the areas of similarity between neuroscience and Buddhist teachings about the mind.
