Principles of Stretching
- Dynamic stretches are best before training/games and involve moving the area to be stretched into, and out of, a position of comfortable tension 10-15 times for each stretch.
- Following training/games, static stretches, in which the muscle stretch can be held for up to 1 minute at a time, aid in recovery.
- Never bounce your stretches or push into pain.
- The best results are achieved by doing a little bit often.
