Alex Larsson has recently come out with his most recent product called the 30-Day Flexibility Home Stretching Challenge. The Stretch Challenge is an online video program comprising eleven dynamic stretches designed to assist stretch, strengthen and improve flexibility. It’s very easy to use, easy to learn and provides excellent results in a comparatively short time. The videos are split into categories such as core strength, joint mobility, flexibility, balance and body awareness.
The 8-minute video program has been extensively researched by fitness experts and sports experts to make sure the stretches do not cause any harm to your system during stretching. The stretches are extremely gentle and do not require any equipment or special skills to perform them. The online video stretching program may be used by individuals of all ages, even when pregnant as the movies are very gentle and effective. The hyperbolic stretching program contains eleven dynamic stretching sessions that last thirty seconds each and includes extending and relaxation music.
The eleven dynamic stretches are divided into three different groups namely Upper, Middle and Lower body stretches. All of the dynamic stretches are divided into two groups namely the upper and the middle body stretches. There’s an optional 30 seconds rest between each one of the three stretches. The Middle body stretch challenge includes three components namely the forward bend, the backward bend and the one-arm dumbbell row. This is followed by two minutes of dynamic stretches for the muscles in the abdomen, lower back and buttocks.
The second group of stretching exercises for the body called the lower body stretch challenge also is made up of set of ten exercises called the hamstring stretch. The hamstring stretch is important for increasing the flexibility of the hamstrings as it lengthens the semitendinosus muscle that’s located at the back of the thighs. Apart, from stretching out the hamstrings there are other benefits of doing this exercise because it helps to strengthen the calf muscles also called the adductors.
The final group of core exercises that will be included in the stretch challenge include the thirty seconds one leg stretch. For doing this stretch you’ll have to lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. Your arms should be at a right angle to the body, while your left hand forms a prayer position in the center of your chest. You need to relax your body and close your eyes. You can now gradually and deeply inhale for thirty minutes and simmer for thirty seconds, interchanging this breathing with 2 counts of five.
These are just a few of the available Stretch Challenge moves that are carefully designed for you to do by yourself at home or in your work place. You’ll see many more than that, which you can do at the website below. Just do a search on the internet and you will find a high number of websites where you will find information about the newest Stretch Challenge videos and e-books. The great thing about being part of a Facebook group is that you have the ability to interact with others who share the same interest with you. You also get to find out more about new stretching techniques such as the hip twist and the triangle stretch.
The perfect way to begin with your thirty seconds one leg stretch is to lie flat on your back on the floor with your legs together and feet flat on the ground. You will then bend at the knee and lift your upper body up while gradually extending your right leg upwards. Keep your arms straight and repeat for thirty seconds. Another one of the best stretching techniques is the wall vegetable, which was created by Dan Godfrey. This stretch works on the quadriceps, hamstrings, calves and gluteal muscles.
Remember that dynamic flexibility is important and static stretches should only form a small proportion of your workout, whereas dynamic flexibility is essential for everyday activities such as running and lifting weights. Static stretches therefore include lying flat on your back and lifting your knees up to your chest, or bending in the knee while lifting your hips. Dynamic flexibility is formed by twisting and moving your joints and muscles without moving them against their normal direction. This sort of flexibility is also found in yoga asana and is particularly helpful for athletes and serious fitness enthusiasts.
