Active Isolated Stretching
This style of stretching both tones and stretches every muscle. Each stretch is anatomically safe, putting no stress on joints or the spine. Active contraction of the opposite muscle during the stretch (reciprocal inhibition) utilizes the bodies natural stretch response and stabilizes the joint during the stretch. Active stretching simultaneously exercises the antagonist to the stretching muscle.This provides a complete exercise that both tones and stretches. This also creates joint stability and postural tone. Each stretch precisely isolates the stretching muscle to prevent compensation by other muscles. Stretches are done in non-weight bearing positions, so the muscle is free to stretch to its fullest extent. While the level of difficulty can be easily adjusted for elderly or injured individuals, the stretches are challenging even for intermediate yoga students and athletes.
This style of stretching was developed by Aaron Mattes. Learn more about active isolated stretching from his web site at www.stretchingusa.com .
