Playlist - Flexibility

The Flexibility series is based on the concept of static stretching, as contrasted with dynamic movement or passive holds. The videos increase in difficulty as you move through the series and cover all your bases as an athlete. The sequences are ideal to do after a workout when you’re fully warmed up. If you like this style of sequence, there are many more in the full collection.
