Stretching – Important for increasing flexibility and increasing the range of motion and ease of movement. Types of Stretches Types of Stretches –1. Static – Gradual lengthening of a muscle until it extends beyond its normal length. Muscles should be stretched to the point of discomfort and held for seconds. –2. Active - Exercises performed without a partner. –3. Passive – Exercises performed with a partner. –4. Ballistic – Involves a bouncing motion when stretching and has a greater potential for injury.
