Flexibility

Flexibility refers to the ability of a joint, such as a knee or shoulder, to move through its full range of motion—important for all athletes. Improving flexibility increases mobility for increased strength and speed, while reducing the risk of injury to muscles, ligaments and tendons. Common exercises for increasing flexibility include static stretching, dynamic warm-ups, yoga, massage therapy and foam rolling. In addition, performing functional exercises through their full range of motion improves overall flexibility. Improve your flexibility with the latest advice and routines from the nation's elite coaches and athletes.
