The Biggest Gymnastics Flexibility Mistakes I Made As A Younger Coach, and What I Do Now

Today’s podcast is a heavily requested topic I get asked about frequently. What is the best approach to flexibility? I summarize five of the biggest mistakes that I used to make as a coach and what I do differently now based on all the things that I've read, learned, and people I've worked with. I break down exactly what the research says about how many days you should stretch, the most effective exercises to do, make things stick long term, make flexibility training more effective saving time and effort, but also keep it as safe as possible.   I DISCUSS; Why consistency not intensity is key.   Which type of stretching is the best.   What is the most effective dosage for stretching?   The importance of eccentric strength training for flexibility.   And…   Does stretching change muscle length over time or does it change our tolerance to stretch?     If you are interested in flexibility training, we have put this podcast out in conjunction with a huge course launch that we've been working on,   The Gymnastic Flexibility Blueprint   …is your one-stop shop for everything I've ever thought about with flexibility in terms of what does the research says made into in an easy to follow summary to help build your own programs: https://shiftmovementscience.com/gfbcourse/
