Static Stretching

  • Gradual lengthening of the muscles, often at an uncomfortable length.
  • Muscles are stretched for around 10 – 30 seconds.
  • The experience should not trigger pain.
  • Often used to rehabilitate injuries and is also used as warm-up exercises.


  • Actions that include continuous muscle stretching in movement.
  • No position is held while in action. The training is dynamic.
  • Used to mirror actual movements during warm-up sessions of team sports.


  • Includes activities that require an individual to swing and bounce.
  • Actions are often repeated to build extra stretch.
  • Actions have underlying risks so only professional athletes are advised to maneuver.
  • Often results in muscle contraction and decreased muscle flexibility.
