Sport - Flexibility exercises (or stretches)


Flexibility exercises, or stretches:

  • may expand your range of motion,
  • keep muscles more limber,
  • improve posture and balance,
  • and help prevent falls.

Warm muscles are less likely to be injured than cold muscles, so it’s best to perform stretches as part of your cool-down following a workout. Or, you can stretch after a five-to10-minute warm-up.

Yoga or tai-chi help with balance as well as flexibility.

Three key stretches for the working triathlete. Perform these stretches regularly and watch flexibility take the place of tightness.

  • Stretch 1: Hip Flexor and Quad Stretch
  • Stretch 2: Hamstring Stretch
  • Stretch 3: Calf Stretch
