Dynamic stretching consists of controlled leg and arm swings that take you gently! The proper way to perform an isometric stretch is as follows: For instance, with different objectives: Rev Bras Med Esporte. The subject was restrained around the chest, pelvic waist and right and left thighs figure 2. However, some parameters such as frequency have not been studied when proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation PNF techniques are used.

The control flexigility was not included in this specific analysis since it did not have daily data.

Flexibility training: ballistic, static or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation?

Be sure to stop when and if you feel tired. Relaxed stretching is also very good for “cooling down” after a workout and helps reduce post-workout muscle fatigue, and soreness. It balpistic then observed that the 3A F 1.

The effect of time and frequency of static stretching on flexibility of the hamstring muscles. Therefore, the muscle stiffness increases.

Passive extensibility of skeletal muscle: The maneuvers and the shatic commands were previously standardized between the two faciltation responsible for the stretching protocol. Grandi 18 also confirmed that passive stretching of 30 seconds has the same efficiency of four repetitions of 18 seconds. The different types of stretching are: Dynamic Stretching Active Stretching: PNF refers to any of several post-isometric relaxation stretching techniques in which a muscle group is passively stretched, then contracts isometrically against resistance while in the stretched position, and then is passively stretched again through the resulting increased range of motion.

Such procedure was performed five days a week during two consecutive weeks, from Monday to Friday, with a total of 10 interventions for each participant.

Assume the position of a passive stretch for the desired muscle. However, group 1A In this case, some of the muscle fibers are already stretched before the contraction, and, if held long enough, the initial passive stretch overcomes the stretch reflex see section The Stretch Reflex and triggers the lengthening reaction see section The Lengthening Reactioninhibiting the stretched fibers from contracting.

Actually, the term PNF stretching is itself a misnomer. Tired muscles have less elasticity which decreases the range of motion used in your movements. The perimysial constitutes the tissue which contributes the most to the passive resistance of the skeletal muscle 2. An example of manual resistance would be holding onto the ball of your foot to keep it from flexing while you are using the muscles of your calf to try and straighten your instep so that the toes are pointed.


This is facilitatlon, or “warming up”, by bouncing into or out of a stretched position, using the stretched muscles as a spring which pulls you out of the stretched position. A biomechanical evaluation of cyclic and static stretch in human faccilitation muscle. In order to explain the loss of the immediate effect, it is known that besides the elastic effect of the muscular viscoelaticity 27the relaxing after the stretching maneuver stimulates the effects of the muscular thixotrophy which act in the tissue shortening.

The muscles are then relaxed for 20 seconds before performing another PNF technique.

A previous study was conducted with eight subjects in which the measurements obtained with the instrument were compared with photometry. The effect of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation and static stretch training on running mechanics. Static Stretching Isometric Stretching: The limb was kept in this position for 30 seconds, time based on Bandy et al. Three or six inhibitions associated propriocsptive static stretching do not seem to be necessary in order od gain flexibility.

An example of using the wall to provide resistance would be the well known “push-the-wall” calf-stretch where you are actively attempting to move the wall even though you know you can’t. Effects of contract-relax stretching training on muscle performance in athletes Malcolm HandelThomas HorstmannH.
