pain free movement

Flexibility is a very underrated discipline. There are two main types of stretching: passive and dynamic. We are interested in passive stretching. Stretching qualities:

  • can help protecting soft tissue from damage.
  • can result in muscles moving faster, therefore generating greater force/strength
  • slows down the aging process

Negatives of being overly flexible:

  • can lead to skeletal misalignment
  • can result in joint injuries
  • can result in the joints being worn out sooner as they are being used instead of muscle.

By using our joints and our muscles maximally requires two elements:

  • moving the joints and muscles through their full range of motion
  • developing the strength/control through their full range.

This will always be part of any program that I design for a client.
