Alex Larsson has just come out with his latest product called the 30-Day Flexibility Home Stretching Challenge. The Stretch Challenge is an online video program comprising eleven dynamic stretches designed to help stretch, strengthen and enhance flexibility. It is very easy to use, easy to learn and provides excellent results in a comparatively short time. The videos are divided into categories such as core strength, joint mobility, flexibility, balance and body awareness.
The 8-minute video program has been thoroughly researched by fitness experts and sports specialists to be certain that the stretches don’t cause any harm to your system during stretching. The stretches are extremely gentle and do not need any equipment or special skills to perform them. The online video stretching program may be used by people of all ages, even if pregnant as the movies are very gentle and effective. 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 groups namely the upper and the middle body stretches. There is 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 next group of stretching exercises for your body called the lower body stretch challenge 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 that’s located at the back of the thighs. Apart, from stretching out the hamstrings there are other advantages of doing this exercise because it helps to strengthen the calf muscles also known as the adductors.
The final group of core exercises that will be contained in the stretch challenge include the thirty seconds one leg stretch. For doing this stretch you will have to lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Your arms should be at a right angle to the body, while your left hand forms a prayer position at the center of your chest. You need to relax your body and shut your eyes. Now you can gradually and deeply inhale for thirty minutes and simmer for thirty seconds, interchanging this breathing with two counts of five.
These are simply a few of the available Stretch Challenge moves that have been carefully designed for you to do by yourself at home or in your work place. You’ll find many more than this, which you can do at the site below. Just do a search online and you will find a large number of sites where you can find information regarding the latest Stretch Challenge videos and e-books. The great thing about being part of a Facebook group is that you are able 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 start with your thirty seconds one leg stretch would be to lie flat on your back on the floor with your legs together and feet flat on the ground. Then you will bend at the knee and lift your upper body up while slowly extending your right leg upwards. Keep your arms straight and repeat for thirty minutes. Another one of the best stretching techniques is the wall vegetable, that was created by Dan Godfrey. This stretch operates on the quadriceps, hamstrings, calves and gluteal muscles.
Remember that dynamic flexibility is important and static stretches should just 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 buttocks. 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 very helpful for athletes and serious fitness enthusiasts.
