Our flexibility-training program is a planned program of exercises that are designed to progressively increase the usable range of motion of a joint. Flexibility exercises are designed to stretch certain muscles and reduce the likelihood of injury to muscle tendon units. Make sure you maintain the stretch for 10-15 seconds – avoid bouncing. You should be in a relaxed state of mind while stretching.
Myth: Strength training decreases flexibility.
Fact: Current research states that proper strength training does not decrease, and in some instances may actually improve flexibility.
