After giving thousands of BFS clinics over the past three decades, we’ve found that stretching is the one component most often missing in an athlete’s training. This omission is odd, considering the tremendous amount of research available on the value of stretching – not just for athletes but also for those who simply want to improve their quality of life. Our society is becoming a nation of couch potatoes, and as a result we have made ourselves far less flexible than ever before. BFS is determined to reverse that trend. The only way to make that happen for our athletes is to incorporate flexibility training into a total program. Let’s talk facts.
Flexibility training performed correctly and consistently will increase the range of motion of an athlete’s joints. Sport scientists generally agree that an effective stretching program is important in preventing injury and promoting good posture. For these reasons, flexibility exercises should be regarded as a critical part of any athletic fitness or physical education program.
