FLEXIBLITY EXERCISES

Flexibility is important for overall fitness and injury prevention. Flexibility is achieved by stretching the muscle over the joint. Stretching exercises help us to improve ROM (range of motion).

Benefits of Stretching Exercises

Stretching exercises help in loosening the muscles before they are exposed to vigorous exercise. This helps to lessen the risk of muscle tear and strains. Flexibility exercises should also be done after weight training or heavy resistance program. This is because the exercised muscles become shorter and tighter when healing unless sensible stretching exercises are done.

Disadvantages of Flexibility

Excessive stretching can lead to joint instability due to over stretched connective and muscle tissue. This can cause injury. If muscles are stretched for long periods, it develops stretch weakness and loss of contractile force.
