WHY STRETCH - SURVIVAL GUIDE 1!

SURVIVAL GUIDE

When you commence some sort of physical activity, you are entering a whole new physical area of development. When you were young, you were flexible, the flexibility decreases when you get older.

In saying the above the more flexible you are and the more flexible your primary joints, for example the shoulders, the knees, the elbows, the ankles the hips and the veritable column.

If you are not flexible then you may have uneven flexibility while performing exercise and also being inflexible may lead to poor posture and out of body alignment.

The ability to use stretches during exercise allows you to have a faster recovery time and have the ability to have a wide range of movement during any aerobic training session.

Remember that if you make stretching apart of your daily routine then you can relieve stress and allow full body restoration.

We use Concentric and Eccentric contractions while doing each training stretch session. We also allow time under tensions analysis to occur during stretch sessions.

Active Stretches: Can be done in any exercise routine and can be performed during any training activity;


Passive Stretch: Also known as a recovery stretch or stretches that are used to rejuvenate the tired body (better done with a stretch partner).

Recovery Stretch: These stretches are usually performed at the end of an exercise session.
