Flexibility Training

What is Flexibility?

Flexibility is a joint's ability to move through a full range of motion. Flexibility training, also called flexibility stretching helps balance muscle groups that might be overused during exercise or physical activity. Sometimes muscle groups might be overused as a result of bad posture.

Benefits of Flexibility Training

There are many benefits to flexibility training. Some of the benefits are listed below

  • Improved Physical Performance
    A flexible joint has the ability to move through a greater range of motion and requires less energy to do so, while greatly decreasing your risk of injury.
  • Decreased Risk of Injury
    Stretching decreases resistance in tissue structures. Decreased resistance in tissue structure will decrease your chances of being injured by exceeding tissue extensibility.
  • Reduced Muscle Soreness
    As you become more flexible through static stretching, the amount of muscle soreness you experience after exercise will decrease. Static stretching involves a slow, gradual and controlled elongation of the muscle through the full range of motion and held for 15-30 seconds in the furthest comfortable position.
  • Improved Posture
    Stretching improves muscular balance and posture. Stretching can help realign soft tissue structures and reducing the effort it takes to achieve and maintain good posture in the activities of daily living.
  • Increased Blood and Nutrients to Tissues
    Stretching increases tissue temperature, which increases circulation and nutrient transport. Increased circulation and nutrient transport allows greater elasticity of surrounding tissues and increases performance.
