Can Stiff Muscles In The Legs Be Flexed?

Hello Ilh12, thank you for asking.
Maybe you mean the muscle that is not or less flexible huh? As is generally known, exercise should be done routinely. Suggestions from international sports medicine organizations, for aerobic sports, must be done at least 3-5 times a week, 30 minutes each (or a total of 150 minutes a week). Aerobic sports such as running, jogging, biking, swimming, walking fast, and others. This exercise is important to maintain fitness, reduce the risk of contracting degenerative diseases, and increase muscle strength.
In addition, other types of exercise are weight training, flexibility, and balance training (especially for the elderly), so it is recommended to do it at least 3 times a week. Weight training aims to increase muscle mass and strength, and reduce body fat percentage. Exercise flexibility, such as yoga, pilates, or others, aims to maintain muscle and joint flexibility. Flexible muscles will certainly be easier to do muscle work and not easily injured. This is important to maintain since young, so that when entering the elderly, muscles and joints are not often injured.
Your body's muscles can certainly still be increased flexibility. You can try sports that increase flexibility and do it regularly. Of course, you must be absolutely sure that there are no injuries that prevent you from exercising. Choose one type of sport that you like, this may require several attempts to find a suitable sport. Choose the most appropriate time. Use the right clothes and sports equipment. Start with heating and end with cooling. Start with the lightest exercise intensity, then gradually increase slowly. Use the services of an instructor, to make sure you make the right moves, to avoid injury.
Thus the information from me, I hope you can exercise regularly. Regards.
