Flexibility training is very important and the many benefits include decreased risk of injury, decreased chronic muscle tension, decreased low-back pain, and increased functional ability. Stretching is a very effective way to increase flexibility even as age increases. When performing stretching, the focus should be on muscle groups (joints) that have a reduced range of motion. Stretching should be performed a minimum of 2-3 days a week. Each stretch should be held, at the end of the range of motion, for 15-60 seconds, without inducing discomfort. Flexibility training and stretching is very effective without any equipment or props. Items that are effective in order to enhance flexibility training and are available at low cost at many retailers as well as at personal training sessions with myself include the following: stability balls, straps and bands, and foam rollers. To learn more about these devices, and and get some assistance regarding flexibility training, I encourage you to contact me about personal training.
