Staying flexible is important because as you get older, your muscles tighten – it’s just a natural part of becoming more mature. But it can also cause some problems if you don’t counteract it with stretching.
Muscles are made up of a collection of many long cells or fibres. Which are enclosed in a tough sheet of connective tissue known as a muscle sheath. Voluntary muscles are usually stimulated to contract or relax by messages sent from the brain to the motor nerve cells controlling the muscle fibres.
Some muscle fibres are always partially contracted. This partial contraction, known as muscle tone is essentially for posture. Without this muscle tone, we would collapse under the force of gravity. It also adds definition and shape of the body.
Stretching increases blood flow to muscles and joints which can assist in the decrease of joint stiffness. Stress causes muscles to tense and this strain can negatively affect your body. Stretching muscles alleviates tension and relaxes muscles which can help reduce stress.
Headaches are the result of poor head posture. The decrease and even loss of shoulder movement along with chronic pain, neck-related headaches and the decline in the ability to exercise as well as many other problems stem from poor posture.
Stretching your neck and upper back can reduce muscle strain and help maintain good posture. Maintaining good posture helps to keep bones and joints aligned, decrease stress on ligaments and helps to keep your spine in place.
So not only does your posture affect your height and health, it can affect your mental health and how you feel about yourself.

Poor posture can lead to serious neck pain and muscular imbalance. To correct this, we must activate our weak muscles while stretching out our tight muscles. Let’s examine these exercises you can do to improve your posture in greater detail:
Exercise #1 – Reverse Plank Bridge
The Reverse Plank Bridge activates specific muscles while stretching key muscles like your pectoral muscles and the muscles in your neck. This exercise requires the following:
- Keep your arms straight and pull your shoulders back.
- Bring your shoulder blades together.
- Tuck your chin.
- Push your chest up and extend your spine.
- Your fingers can be pointed forward or backward.
Exercise #2 – Planking
