Flexibility Benefits

Muscle imbalances are alterations in the lengths of muscles surrounding a given joint, in which some are overactive (forcing compensation to occur) and others may be underactive (allowing for the compensation to occur). Muscle imbalances can be caused by a variety of mechanisms. These may include:

  • Postural stress

  • Emotional duress

  • Repetitive movement

  • Cumulative trauma

  • Poor training technique

  • Lack of core strength

  • Lack of neuromuscular efficiency

Flexibility Training is a key component for ALL training programs. The following are the major benefits of increased flexibility:

  • Correcting muscle imbalances

  • Increasing joint range of motion

  • Decreasing the excessive tension of muscles

  • Relieving joint stress

  • Maintaining the normal functional length of all muscles

  • Improving neuromuscular efficiency

  • Improving overall function

  • Decreased chance of Injury
