Description

There are different types of stretching and flexibility techniques out there. The one most people associate with the word “stretching” is the technique of static stretching. This is where we get into a particular position or posture and hold the stretch. The purpose of static stretching is to lengthen muscle groups that tend to shorten up and become overactive. Improving the motion of overactive muscles increases the flexibility of the joints they pull on, thereby making our ability to move better and more efficient. It is important that you do not push too hard or too far into a stretch because our muscles have a built-in protective mechanism that cause them to fight back instead of relaxing when pushed beyond a comfortable limit. Take the target muscle(s) into the stretch until a slight amount of tension is felt, hold for 30-60 seconds-this will ensure you receive maximum results from your stretching routine. DO NOT BOUNCE! Breathe and feel the stretch!
