The Stretch Challenge is an online video program containing eleven dynamic stretches designed to help stretch, strengthen and enhance flexibility.

The hyperbolic stretching program comprises eleven dynamic stretching sessions which last thirty minutes each and includes extending and relaxation music.

The eleven dynamic stretches are divided into three distinct groups namely Upper, Middle and Lower body moves. All of the dynamic stretches have been divided into two categories namely the upper and the middle body stretches. There’s an optional 30 seconds rest between each of the three stretches. The Middle body stretch challenge includes three parts namely the forward bend, the backward bend and the one-arm dumbbell row. This is followed by 2 minutes of dynamic stretches for the muscles in the abdomen, lower back and hips.

The second group of stretching exercises for your body called the lower body stretch obstacle also consists of a 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 which is found at the back of the thighs. Apart, from stretching out the hamstrings there are other advantages of doing this exercise as it helps to strengthen the calf muscles also called the adductors.

The final group of core exercises which will be included in the stretch challenge include the thirty minutes one leg stretch. For doing this stretch you will 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 middle of your chest. You will need to relax your body and close your eyes. You can now slowly and deeply inhale for thirty minutes and simmer for thirty minutes, interchanging this breathing with 2 counts of five.

This type of flexibility can also be found in yoga asana and is very useful for athletes and serious fitness enthusiasts.
