Flexibility is an important part of fitness. Stretching is the most effective way to increase your flexibility over time, but sometimes it can get a little boring and difficult to progress. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of our favorite flexibility aids you can find on Amazon.
Let’s get flexible!
A dharma wheel is a yoga prop that is used to stretch your back. If you’re looking for a deeper backbend, or to open up tight muscles, a dharma wheel can help you unlock a more flexible upper and lower back.
A stretching strap is often recommended by physical therapists and trainers because it helps users get deeper and more productive movement. We like this stretching strap in particular because it comes with a guide to stretches for common areas of pain or inflexibility.
Ever heard of “myofascial release”? It’s a technical term for massage that relaxes tensed muscles to improve flexibility. Along with trigger-point release, you can use self-massage tools to increase circulation to your soft tissue (muscles and connective tissue) to release contracted muscles. Doing so can help you stretch further and improve your overall flexibility.
This self-massage set includes a lacrosse ball, a “peanut” and a spiky ball for varying levels of pressure on tight and sore muscles.
