My 6 Favourite Static Stretches

People have been asking me to post videos of our stretching for a long time and I’ve finally got around to doing it!

This video has 6 of my favourite stretches that I use with a large majority of my athletes and clients.

Watch the video and try them out in your own training or with your athletes. One thing to remember which I think I touch on in the video is developing muscle range takes time. You have to spend time in those positions and when I say time, 30s just doesn’t cut it. You need to be spending minutes at a time working at a low intensity to actually develop increased range. 

I wrote about this in my recent blog IT TAKES MORE THAN 30s TO DEVELOP so check that blog out too.

Anyway enjoy the video and do leave me your comments, always interested to hear your thoughts 🙂


 

Peace out for another day,
