As we age, it’s natural for our bodies to lose some of their flexibility and mobility. This can lead to stiffness, decreased range of motion, and an increased risk of injury.

This is especially true if we’re desk bound for most of the day, which can take a massive toll on our spine and hips.

However, by taking steps to maintain and improve our flexibility and mobility, we can help keep our bodies healthy and active as we get older.

In this article, we will discuss the importance of working on your mobility as you age, as well as some tips and techniques for improving and maintaining your flexibility and range of motion. Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or simply looking to maintain your quality of life, there are many benefits to staying mobile and active as you age.


Try stretching regularly to improve your flexibility and range of motion. This can help prevent stiffness and reduce your risk of injury.

Here are a few stretches that can help improve your flexibility as you age:

  1. Hamstring stretch: Sit on the floor with your legs extended straight out in front of you. Slowly lean forward and reach for your toes, keeping your back straight. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds and repeat 3–4 times.
