Useless Flexibility Exercises

Abstract

Useless flexibility exercises are done by athletes, trainers, and other practitioners with the intention of increasing their range of motion. Unfortunately, the time taken to stretch the muscles across specific joints is time wasted that could have been used to obtain benefits from the three good flexibility exercises. This outcome is primarily due to the lack of anatomical knowledge as to whether the range of motion of specific exercises actually produces a significant stretch on the muscles. When an exercise cannot place a stretch on the muscles, it is useless and ineffective and should not be part of the flexibility training program.
