F2T 218 – Facts and Fallacies of Stretching (Self Paced)

The type of stretching that is most beneficial will depend largely on the OBJECTIVES (the WHY), PERFORMER (the WHO), and corresponding ACTIVITY (the WHAT)

It’s commonly stated that static stretching should not be used before an activity because it can impair performance. But does it? And if so, what types of stretching should be avoided? What types of performances are affected? However, if this isn’t the case, could static stretching actually provide benefit? Perhaps stretching should be incorporated into every exercise routine to maximize the potential benefits. Sifting through the seemingly endless ‘truths’ about stretching can lead to confusion and uncertainty when providing recommendations to others.

This online workshop will examine some of the most controversial claims about stretching, review the science behind each, and provide a series of practical tips to make the most of any stretching routine. Ultimately, the type of stretching that will provide the most benefit will depend largely on the reasons why a stretching intervention is being used, who is using the stretching intervention, and what activities should (not) be influenced by the stretching intervention in the short- or long-term.
