Mariela Miller Personal Trainer Flexibility Exercises

There are 5 components that are essential to an effective Fitness Program.  When I work with a client my job is to make sure all of these components are used effectively.  Our results will depend on it.

The third component that I will like to discuss is the Flexibility component.

Flexibility or the Stretching component is an essential component of a balance exercise program.  The ease with which you can move your muscles and joints through a full range of motion can affect your risk for muscle strains and musculoskeletal injuries.

To achieve a well-rounded stretching program:

  • We make sure to stretch all major muscles groups.
  • We stretch anywhere between 3 to 5 days a week, especially the days we exercise.
  • We stretch to the point of slight resistance or tension, but not to the point of pain.
  • Hold each stretch for 15-30 seconds once the muscles are warmed up not cold.
  • We repeat stretches 1 to 3 times.

Benefits of Stretching or increasing flexibility:

  1. Helps maintain good posture.
  2. Can lessen many everyday aches and pains and enhance mobility.
  3. Improves your efficiency at sport skills and every day activities.
  4. Reduces the rick or exercise related injuries.
  5. Relieves back pain and reduces risk for low back pain.
  6. Reduces muscle soreness after activity.
  7. Improves blood flow to the muscles.

Some examples of Stretching Modalities to improve flexibility that I may use for my clients include.

  • Regular stretching exercising
  • Yoga poses
  • Stretching muscles with Foam Rollers
  • Stretch out straps to improve flexibility
