Simple Tips To Improve Flexibility

Free your body of unwanted tension by following these simple flexibility training tips.

Static Stretching:

  • Hold each stretch for 20-30 seconds.
  • Repeat each stretch 2-3 times.
  • Increase the stretch slowly to a point of manageable tension.
  • Breathe normally whilst holding a stretch (in through the nose, out through the mouth) 

Active Stretching:

  • Hold each stretch for 2-4 seconds.
  • Repeat for 8-10 repetitions.

Dynamic Flexibility:

  • Movements that you do everyday or during sports.

Foam Rolling:

  • Roll whenever and wherever the mood, whether you're at home watching tv or after a workout.
  • Position the appropriate muscle on the roller.
  • Slowly roll until you find a tight and tender area.
  • Hold the position until the tenderness decreases.
  • Do 1-2 sets per muscles group, taking about 30-45 seconds each muscle.
