The Importance Of Stretching And Flexibility - #FITNESS #HEALTH

The Importance Of Stretching And Flexibility - #FITNESS #HEALTH | SportsTherapy | Scoop.it

One very important, but often forgotten about element of a good training routine is stretching and flexibility work.  Stretching is going to be important for a wide variety of different reasons but yet sadly, very few people actually make the time in their program schedule to allow for this.

Sophie Ammar's insight:

Stretching is something people often forget about! Stretching is so important for flexibility, to keep muscles in good shape and if none of that interests you, then do it to reduce muscle soreness post exercise.

The New Media Moguls's curator insight, May 14, 2013 7:22 PM

Dynamic stretches involves stretching muscles without holding the position for too long.  This form of stretching prepares the body for physical exertion and sports performance

 

 Static stretching,  is the more old school method, in which, you hold a position for 10-20 seconds for a muscle group after a workout. This technique helps your body flush away lactic acid, reduce blood levels of adrenaline, returns resting heart rate to normal, and reduces muscle soreness.

How to REALLY Do a Perfect Plank - RKC School of Strength

How to REALLY Do a Perfect Plank - RKC School of Strength | SportsTherapy | Scoop.it

When I first started learning kettlebells, there was a common cue I heard from all of them. It was “Squeeze your glutes like you have a quarter between them.” This cue came along with “flex your quads and brace your core.” But the “Squeeze your glutes” cue really stuck with me.

  Well, what I came up with is, how a plank should really be done. How a plank is actually the key to getting your abs to fire. How a plank is biomechanically necessary to master many bodyweight movements. How a plank can prep the body to do many of the exercises in Convict Conditioning. I will also relate how a plank is extremely functional, or transferable as I say, to a large number of exercises.

Stress Relief with Massage Therapy

Stress  Relief with Massage Therapy | SportsTherapy | Scoop.it

By now, almost every adult in the world has been made aware of the fact that massage can offer relief from stress. Stress is unavoidable, given the lifestyles we have and the ever increasing onus of financial anxieties. The only thing that is variable is the extent to which one is stressed out. For some, stress is often a temporary problem which gets relieved with a good night’s sleep or some entertaining pastime.

Sophie Ammar's insight:

Having a strong core is essential for balance, strength but also for rehabilitation of some spinal problems, especially weakness.

Core strength isn't just about having a flat stomach, read this :)

Nichola Smith's curator insight, May 18, 2013 7:08 PM

This should be the basis for any sport.  Also, many of us work in sedentary jobs nowadays so good posture is important to prevent RSI and subsequent loss of income.

basiltweede's curator insight, September 6, 2015 10:50 AM

Although many sports psychologists disagree on what type of physiotherapy needed to heal sports injuries, they all agree that physiotherapy is needed for that injury to be heal as rapidly as it should. Static stretch for each injured muscle group and also for the surrounding supporting muscle group. this will promote fast healing and put the athlete back on track to compete.
