Today we bring to you a test by which you can find out about your body’s age and learn about various useful exercises. To know what these are, continue reading.
To test your body’s age:
It is really easy. Just keep your legs and back straight. Slowly go down and try to touch your toes. Remember to keep your posture sharp. Now stand straight again. And relax your body.
1. 20-25 years
You will be able to touch the floor with your flat palms and your body is relaxed yet. It faces no tugging or pulling.
2. 25-38 years
You are able to touch the floor with the tip of your fingers and your knees are slightly bent. However, there is no strong sense of discomfort.
Your knees are quite bent and you are able to touch the upper part of your feet. You can feel pain at the inner part of your legs.
4. More than 50
You are unable to completely bend and have a desperate desire you get back up right away.
Now that you are done finding your body’s age, it’s time to work on it to increase its efficiency.
How to improve:
It’s ok if you aren’t satisfied with your result. You can always change by constant practice. Just bend down around 30 times a day and you will get the best results in almost a month. Don’t force your body all at once. You might face major injuries for doing so. Instead, go slowly but steadily. Push your body a little more each day. Start off the first few days by trying to touch the upper part of your feet. On accomplishing that, move towards touching your toes by the tip of your fingers. Once you get there, it only is a matter of couple of days and a little more effort and you will be able to keep your palm flat on the ground.
To release muscle tension:
Static gymnastic is the answer to this. It is very easy. It also helps enriching your body with oxygen. This exercise is also responsible for giving a little ‘massage’ to your internal organs which otherwise get manipulated by constant toxic substances found on food and air.
Ps. Don’t overdo it and see a doctor if you start experiencing pain!
