Good Flexibility Exercises

Tommy Boone


A good flexibility program requires no more than “three” stretching exercises (sit-straddle-reach stretch, shoulder and chest stretch, and the standing hip flexor stretch) to maximize the range of motion of the muscles that undergo adaptive shortening. Increased flexibility in the anterior chest and shoulder muscles, the low back, adductors, hamstrings, and plantar flexor muscles, and the hip flexors, help an athlete or client to engage in athletics or recreational programs, with an increase in skill performance and movement efficiency with less degree of difficulty as compared to earlier musculoskeletal limitations.
