Flexistretcher: Stretching Tips

Focus on the muscles involved in each stretch, minimizing movement of other body parts.

  • Hold stretches between 15 and 30 seconds. According to the American College of Sports Medicine, stretching should be held for 15-30 seconds and repeated 2-4 times in each position.
  • Stretch to the limit of movement, not to the point of pain.
  • Breathe slowly and rhythmically while holding stretches. Holding your breath or taking more shallow breaths prevents oxygen from reaching your muscles. As a result, muscles fatigue more quickly or experience unnecessary stress.
