Stretching Techniques

There are many different types of stretching techniques and a lot of time people forget that there are different options then just bending over and touching your toes. Below are a few of the most common types of stretching techniques. Different stretches feel better for different people, so always remember to listen to your body.

Static Stretching: Static stretching is the most common type of stretching, static stretching is done by stretching your targeted muscle at it’s maximum point for about 30 seconds. Example: pigeon

Dynamic Stretching: Dynamic stretching is different from static stretching because you use movement to stretch your muscles. Typically it is a movement that is similar to the exercises you are about to perform. Example: front kicks

Active Isolated Stretching: AIS is a technique in which you hold a stretch for about 2-3 seconds at a time and then repeat each time going deeper into the stretch.

Myofascial Release: Myofascial release is performed using a foam roller, or something similar. Foam rolling releases tension from your fascia and muscles. To perform myofascial release you must roll back and forth over an area for about 1 minute.

All of these stretching techniques can be utilized by a single individual, let one of our personal trainers know if you have any questions about these stretching techniques. Make sure to try a new one the next time you are working out!
