What stage of change are you in?Do you stretch during cool-down?
Flexibility The ability of a joint to move freely through its full range of motion. Flexibility tends to decrease with age, disuse, injury, excessive body fat, and muscle imbalances. © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
What are the benefits of and five cautions for stretching?Study Question 1 What are the benefits of and five cautions for stretching? © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
Benefits of FlexibilityDecreased aches and pains. Enhanced ability to move freely and easily. Possible decreased risk of injury. Recovery from injury. Enhanced athletic performance. Reversal of age-related decline in flexibility. Improved posture and appearance. Decreased muscle soreness after exercise. It feels good. © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.

What are the two types of flexibility?Study Question 3 What are the two types of flexibility? © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
Types of Flexibility Static DynamicRange of motion that is achieved through slow controlled stretching. Most commonly used and recommended type. Dynamic Range of motion that is achieved through moving a limb to its limits in a ballistic fashion. Associated with increased muscle soreness and the stretch reflex. Used more in athletic competition. Not recommended for personal fitness programs due to risk of injury. © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
What are the four types of stretching?Study Question 4 What are the four types of stretching? © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
Active Static or Active Dynamic vs. Passive Static or Passive DynamicActive stretching uses your own muscle forces to stretch yourself. Passive stretching uses someone or something else to assist with a stretch (body weight, gravity, strap or leverage). © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
What are some basic guidelines for flexibility development?Study Question 5 What are some basic guidelines for flexibility development? © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
Guidelines of Flexibility DevelopmentFrequency – 2 to 3 days a week (up to 7 days if possible). Intensity – slightly beyond the normal range of motion to the point of tension. Time – 10 to 30 second static hold. Repetitions – at least 4 sustained stretches for each muscle group. Guidelines – warm-up first, stretch to prepare for activity, cool-down stretch is most beneficial, stop at the point of discomfort, DON’T bounce, strive for muscular balance. © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
What are the five principles of flexibility development?Study Question 6 What are the five principles of flexibility development? © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
Principles for Flexibility DevelopmentProgressive overload Improvement in joint range of motion occurs when sustained stretching produces elastic and plastic elongation. Specificity Flexibility is specific to each joint, i.e., an individual could do the splits but have poor shoulder range of motion. Reversibility If a persons stops stretching, over time, range of motion will decrease. Balance Muscles can be tighter on one side of the body. Pay attention to flexibility differences and work to improve them. Individual Differences People vary in their ability to develop flexibility. © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.

Study Question 8 Can you differentiate between the safe and contraindicated exercises illustrated in this chapter? © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
Contraindicated ExercisesDo not hyperflex or hyperextend the knee, neck, or lower back. Do not twist the knee. Avoid holding your breath. Avoid stretching long weak muscles (abdominals) and shortening short/strong muscles (hip flexors). Avoid stretching to the point of pain. Be especially careful when using passive stretches with another person. Avoid movements that place acute compressional force on spinal discs. Avoid movements that cause joint impingements or cartilage damage. If your sport requires the violation of good mechanics make certain the muscles are as strong as possible. © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
Study Question 9 What are the general guidelines for identifying exercises that increase risk of injury? © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
Exercises to Avoid Avoid the following exercises:Yoga plow, knee tuck to chest, head roll, hurdler stretch, full squat, standing toe touch, ballet bar leg stretch, windmill toe touches, straight-leg sit-up, double-leg lift, swan arch, donkey kicks Do the following: Single-knee tuck to chest (hugging thigh), half-head rolls, alternative hurdler stretch, half-knee bend, lying hamstring stretch, sitting hamstring stretch, oblique abdominal curls, bent-knee ab curls, single arm/leg raises, modified donkey kicks. There are some exceptions to these guidelines for those who are well conditioned and can minimize risk. © McGraw-Hill Higher Education. All rights reserved.
