How To Stretch
Importance of Stretching in Martial Arts
Regular stretching performed properly can minimize your risk of injury, reduce muscle soreness and improve your overall performance. Stretching is a great way to relieve a tired body, mind and spirit.
Ways to Increase Flexibility
• Stretch before and after a workout or class.
• To improve flexibility when stretching hold a stretch for a minimum of 60 seconds.
• Avoid bouncing or forcing yourself into a stretch, this can lead to injury.
• Work slowly to achieve small, gradual improvements in your flexibility.
• Breathe naturally. Holding your breath as you stretch will tighten your muscles instead of relaxing them.
• Stretch all muscle groups equally.
• Maintain proper form, learn how to perform each stretching movement correctly.
• Listen to your body, if you are overly fatigued you may want to limit your range of motion.
• Consistency is the key. Stretch regularly to maintain or increase your flexibility.
• Never force a stretch, work at your own pace.
