What if you could match your flexibility to your mobility?

When out in the park doing some flexibility movements, I try to fool my nervous system to belive that being stiff, will put us in danger.

What happens is my nervous system releases "Hormones or raise my whatever it does" that makes me more pliable and or flexible.

Another trick I play on myself is to tell muscles to sleep or have a nap; it works for me.

This is mind over matter stuff.

Point being, playing a tug of wars with muscles, to make them more flexible, can actually get the opposite effect, than what is desired.

Smiling can help flexibility more than frowning due to it takes less muscles to look happy than angry; this is why many fighters start smiling while fighting as it relaxes muscles to throw faster, better, higher, looser kicks or punches.

That's the theory, if interested here is more of the same...
