How does the Flexistretcher improve flexibility?

Core Flexistretcher movements include stretching and strengthening through use of elastic resistance with sturdy straps. A strap alone may not be the best tool. Yoga straps and other “static” stretching aids risk injury by forcing the user’s body into stretch positions, while the Flexistretcher’s elastic center strap allows the body to find a healthy range of movement. Elastic resistance also challenges muscles within positions, helping build strength and increase one’s range of motion. The Flexistretcher can be used for facilitated stretching, which is an active way of stretching that engages muscle contractions to achieve greater flexibility.

Utilizing elastic resistance allows for variable resistance throughout an exercise. Working against this resistance forces muscles to respond with increased effort, which promotes muscle growth, strength, and power.

  • Working with the Flexistretcher allows one to simulate dance-specific or sport-specific movement patterns concentrating on improvements in execution and mobility.
  • Utilizing elastic resistance, the Flexistretcher increases muscle strength in a safe, productive manner.
  • As the band stretches, resistance increases, providing a stimulus to the muscle. This resistance does not rely on gravity. Instead, training with elastic resistance provides a variable resistance throughout the stretch or exercise, eliminating the possibility of using momentum and "cheating" your way through the movement.
