Different terms are used to describe the same concept: the capacity and the quality that the athlete has to be able to perform movements of large amplitude articulate themselves or by the influence of external forces. According to different authors: mobility, agility, elasticity, mobility articulate or capacity of extension.
The optimal development of specific flexibility for each sport produces a positive action on the physical factors that determine the performance sports and, at the same time, it prevents injury.
Performs the movements without abruptly to note the tension of the muscles involved, and keep the position for a few seconds (from 20 to 30).
Each person has their limit; It is not effective for the improvement, compete or compare with the performance of others, because that may cause injury.
A good warming improves outcomes; do not try to achieve maximum travel articulate if the muscles are not hot.
Flexibility exercises can be performed:
After the warming, prior to the training phase.
Among series of exercises to improve recovery and prevent the cooling.
After the main part of the training, the return to calm, to speed up recovery and avoid the loss of elasticity of the muscles.
The result depends more on the quality of the training that the number of carried out exercises.
If you do not understand any of the exposed exercises, he seeks the advice of a professional.
You can make one or two sessions a day, provided that there is a balance in the training of all the physical qualities.
