Hanging (by your arms or up side down).

This also does not have to be a bad thing by itself.
But by giving your body more room to relax and extend the space between joints, your body is able to exchange fluids more , and circulate unhindered wherever it goes, try hanging after your training for 2-5 minutes as a start.
You choose the lengths of the hang. And allow yourself to start easy, enter by play.
10 seconds will become 30, and 1 minutes will become two.

III. Hang; 10-30-60 hangs after training for 2-5 minutes Total
