Experiencing Flexibility Training
For this discussion you will experience a type of flexibility training and reflect on your experience.
To begin, select one of these practices: Tai Chi, Yoga, or Pilates. Describe the benefits of your chosen practice and explain its relationship to wellness.
Then, engage in one of these activities by taking a course at your local gym, a recreation center, or a private studio. If you do not have access to a live class, you may find a digital alternative such as a class from a website, the on-demand channel on TV, a fitness video game, or a DVD. Be creative in finding a class. You may also check your local library for videos.
Next, examine your experience with flexibility training by describing the session, the setting, and three exercises within the session.
Which muscles did these three exercises address? You must use the correct medical terminology for the muscles used in each exercise.
Would you continue to incorporate these exercises into your ongoing flexibility training?
Examine the relationship between flexibility training and wellness by rating your stress level and muscle tension before and after the session on a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being the highest).
Explain any differences you may have felt physically or mentally after the session.
Your initial post must be a minimum of 250 words. Use at least one scholarly reference properly cited and referenced according to APA style as outlined.
