In Pilates

No one wants to be sidelined by pain or injury, which is why you might wonder if something is up when you notice that you don’t have as much flexibility as the instructor in your yoga class, or when your muscles feel especially stiff after a workout.

However, muscle stiffness — or being unable to bend like gumby — isn’t necessarily a sign that something is wrong. It’s beneficial to understand what defines normal flexibility, why you might feel muscle stiffness, and when what you’re experiencing could be a sign of an injury for which you should seek medical advice.
