As if there is some wonder-gene that allows you to do the splits. That’s just not the case, and I’ll explain why you aren’t getting a result from your flexibility program in one word: Discipline. Adding flexibility takes the same amount of effort and focus as increasing any other facet of your physical abilities. Let’s flip the situation around and suppose that instead of wishing to increase your flexibility you wanted to get better in your martial art or get stronger.

So the first step to increasing flexibility is to give it the attention it deserves. Discipline is important for the next part of flexibility training also. As we get older we actually end up with less and less range of motion because we do less and less. When it comes to skill training it’s not just a matter of doing reps.

And so they work from the inside out by practicing daily postures that make use of gravity in their favor. We can all use this force (gravity) to restore our organs to their original position in the blue print of the body, meaning the body we had when we were born, and slow the effect of gravity both internally and externally.

Yoga is too slow and boring; it's practised in stuffy, incense-filled rooms – or in 90C heat; it's just for girls and people who are into chanting.

Here is a series of apps for Android phones and tablets that'll help writers throughout the entire process, from brainstorming to writing to editing.
