Can strength training improve your flexibility? Or do you have to rely on stretching and mobility work in order to move better?

Too often strength training leaves people feeling stiff and achy, but does it have to be this way? Or can you change some things about HOW you are strength training to not only leave you feeling better after you finish, but increase your flexibility as a result without stretching or mobility work?

On this week’s episode of the Exercise Is Health® podcast, Julie and Charlie explore this idea of increasing your flexibility with strength training and unveil one of the key principles that will help you to do just that.

If you are sick of spending hours each week stretching, rolling, and doing mobility to try to get flexible after your strength training leaves you stiff and achy, listen up! This one principle can make a HUGE difference in how your body responds to your strength training both in terms of reducing soreness and increasing your flexibility.
