*What the REALITY really is:

-What the INDUSTRY teaches us     

 VS  

INDUSTRY:

Decreases muscle stiffness     

REALITY:              

*Muscle stiffness is how much energy is needed to move a muscle.

*Something that requires less energy to move is weaker. 

*Get the 'movers' (the muscles that make you move) better at moving

and the 'allowers'  (muscles that allow you to move) will not have to

try and prevent you from moving into a position you cannot  control.

-May reduce your risk of injury.                                                                              

       ​

*Anything that 'may' also 'may not'.  Forcing a range of motion that you cannot control increases your risk of injury.                 

*If you are tight due to neurological weakness, address the weakness and the need to be tight will go away.

-Helps relieve post-exercise aches and pains.   

*If you have damaged the soft tissue (muscle/tendon or ligament) or joint due to over/improper training then the body may need to tighten up to allow for repairs.      
*Tightness needs to be respected not rejected!

-Improves posture.   

*Anything that 'may' also 'may not'.  Forcing a range of motion that you cannot control increases your risk of injury.

*If you are tight due to neurological weakness, address the weakness and the need to be tight will go away.

-Helps reduce or manage stress.    

*If you are stressed because of work, boss, neighbor, money, spouse,

partner, child, friend, family, or any other possible reason then address IT.  
*Stretching will not help your child, spouse, boss, etc.. mind or listen any
better!

-Reduces muscular tension and enhances muscular relaxation.

*Tight muscle does restrict circulation...a stretched muscle is tighter and smaller which means stretching decrease oxygen and essential nutrients.

*You only feel the muscles that are working/overworking; you do not feel what is not working.  A muscle's job is to hold you together. 

Why do you want a loose muscle?  

-Improves mechanical efficiency and

  overall functional performance.                  

*Function requires muscles working properly to either create, prevent, or allow motion.  Stretching only focuses on the muscles that will not allow the motion you desire.                          

*If your hamstrings (hip extenders) are tight because one of your hip flexors are weak then the tightness is necessary for controlled function.

-Prepares the body for the stress of exercise. 

*How is it that you can do the same exact stretch to 'Prepare for STRESS'

and 'Enhance Muscular RELAXATION' (Reason 6....opposite ends of the

tension spectrum)????         
*How many traditional exercises challenge you in the extreme limitations

of a muscle/joint?  How is preparing at the end helping with midway?                            

-Promotes circulation. 

*If it is cold outside are you going to stretch your fingers/hands to warm them up?  NO, you are going to rub them together.                      
*How many times have you slept with your arm stretched above your head
and woken up with your arm red from all the blood that flowed to it while 

it was stretched out?

*Motion produces blood flow; muscles that are pulled tight (stretched) restrict blood flow.

-Decreases the risk of low-back pain.   

*Typically the 'Sit-&-Reach' test measures hamstring flexibility.  But how many parts of the body are between your finger tips and toe tips while reaching for your toes?  ALL!                                                
*If you can't reach your toes, how come the hamstrings get the blame; if
you stretch and now can reach further, how come the hamstrings get the credit?? 
*If you do not know what is stopping you from moving then you do not

know what let go to allow you to move!                                                             

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 Once you understand the issues with traditional stretching

it's time to understand how to actually stretch!
