    Index for Stretches for Improving Flexibility

    General Guidelines and Tips

    One reason for stretching is that it feels good. Another reason is to improve flexibility.

    In either case it helps to feel and control your body while you stretch.

    For any muscle that you are stretching (whether doing active stretching or relaxed stretching) work at stabilizing one end to which that muscle attaches.

    • For relaxed stretching work at relaxing the muscle being stretched.
    • For active stretching you can be activating the muscle being stretched, its opposing muscle or both.
    • In all cases create stability so that you can activate or relax the muscle you are working on.
