Murrieta Flexibility Training
Perfect Form Personal Training provides the best Murrieta flexibility training program.
Flexibility is the ability of joints and body parts to execute their full range of motion. It is required in all our daily activities - bending, lifting, walking, etc. Flexibility is what allows muscles to remain mobile.
However, just as flexibility allows us to move, it is movement or, more specifically, lack of movement, that makes us lose flexibility. Therefore, it is important to include flexibility exercises in your daily workout regimen to allow your body full range of motion.
At Perfect Form, we help you maintain and improve your flexibility with several stretching techniques - all designed with your specific needs in mind. Stretching should never be painful and is actually a form of active relaxation that can improve both mental and physical recovery, among other benefits.
The Benefits of Flexibility Training
Sometimes, we take the ability to move for granted. However, as we age or through habits acquired through the years, we create body movements and poor posture habits that lead to reduced joint mobility.
Incorporating flexibility training into your exercise regimen is important and give you the following benefits:
Prevents pain and injury. Exercises that lengthen and stretch muscles help prevent injuries and back pain.
Improves balance. Flexibility training improves problems with balance.
Full range of motion. Well-stretched muscles more easily achieve full range of motion. In turn, this helps you move better. It becomes easier to reach, bend, or stoop during daily tasks.
Jump starts your day or cools you down after. Stretching can also be a great way to get you moving in the morning or a way to relax after a long day.
Flexibility training involves several stretching techniques:
Static Stretching: This is the most basic technique and is an easy way to begin and to work into more challenging stretches. It is a stretch that involves having your body move into a position that is held for approximately 15-30 seconds.
Passive Stretching: A passive stretch requires a form of outside assistance, such as your body weight, a strap, a stretching device, or another person that helps you achieve a stretch.
With passive stretching, you relax the muscle you’re trying to stretch and rely on the external force to move and hold you in place.
Active (Isolated) Stretching: This technique involves contracting a muscle that is in opposition to the target muscle. The target muscle refers to the muscle that is the target of the stretch, and the active part refers to the active contracting of the opposite side muscle.
As opposed to passive stretching, this technique does not use any external device or force.
Dynamic Stretching: Dynamic stretching involves movements that increase the range of motion at a specific joint to mimic a sports movement or activity.
Most often, with dynamic stretching, a stretch is performed by moving through a challenging but comfortable range of motion repeatedly, usually 10 to 12 times. This is also called Active-Dynamic.
Resistance Stretching: At Perfect Form we specialize in resistance stretching. It is based on the natural way that muscles stretch and involves contracting muscles while simultaneously lengthening them.
Resistance stretching is considered as the most effective, yet safest way to gain muscle flexibility and joint mobility. As an expert in the field, I, Jason De La Cruz of Perfect Form, provide the best Murrieta flexibility training to ensure your safety.
PNF Stretching: Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, better known as PNF stretching, is a technique that uses contraction and relaxation actions combined with Active Isolated Stretches.
My role as your coach is to provide resistance as you also resist for 10 seconds.
Self-Myofascial Release: This technique is also known as SMR and is aimed at relieving pain and discomfort caused by adhesions in the fascia. These keep the muscles from working efficiently.
SMR uses specific pressure techniques using foam rollers, and sometimes the sports ball, to address issues in the fascia.
This technique, when done improperly, may be uncomfortable for some people. However, under proper supervision, SMR is neither painful nor exhausting.
