In order to better know the passive stretching technique, some researchers verified the influence of frequency and quantity of stretching maneuvers.

Descriptive statistics was used to analyze the following data: Therefore, the muscle stiffness increases. The volunteers were instructed to totally relax the leg during the stretching, not offering any voluntary resistance.

Flexibility training: ballistic, static or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation?

The results of the present study partly corroborate the findings by Spernoga et al. Dynamic stretching consists of controlled leg and arm swings that take you gently! See section Warming Up. Finally, each experimental group was submitted to a one-way ANOVA variance analysis in order to verify in which session significant gain of KAE occurred concerning the pre-test measurement.

Ballistic stretches involve trying to force a part of the body beyond its range of motion. See section Cooling Down. Similarly, when a muscle is stretched, some of the fibers are elongated and some remain at rest nueromuscular section What Happens When You Stretch. An example of using a partner to provide resistance would be having a partner hold your leg up high and keep it there while you attempt to force your leg back down to the ground.



This allows the muscle spindles to habituate become accustomed to an even further-lengthened position. The tension generated by the contraction activates the golgi tendon organ see section Proprioceptorswhich inhibits contraction of the muscle via the lengthening reaction see section The Lengthening Reaction. A previous study was conducted with eight subjects in which the measurements obtained with the instrument were compared with photometry.

Furthermore, as with isometric stretching, PNF stretching is very strenuous and should be performed for a given muscle group no more than once per day ballistic, no more than once per 36 hour period. Stretching techniques with PNF are characterized by the use of active muscular contraction with the purpose to cause autogenic inhibition of the stretched muscle.

Gains in range of ankle dorsiflexion using three popular stretching techniques. Therefore, it is concluded that stretching maneuvers neurpmuscular Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation are effective for the flexibility increase of the hamstring muscles, regardless the frequency used one; three flexxibility six maneuvers.

It may instead cause balliistic to tighten up by repeatedly activating the stretch reflex see section The Stretch Reflex. It is similar to the hold-relax technique except that a dynamic or ballistic stretch is employed in place of the final passive stretch.

Also like isometric stretching, PNF stretching helps strengthen the muscles that are contracted and therefore is good for increasing active flexibility as well as passive flexibility. All the authors declared there is not any potential conflict of interests regarding this article.

J Orthop Sports Phys Ther. It does not allow your muscles to adjust to, neutomuscular relax in, the stretched position. Concerning the immediate effect of flexibbility with PNF, that is, the difference between the pre and post-stretching measurements of the same session, group 1A increased an average of 4.

As a result, in order to decrease the amount of time taken up by your stretching routine without decreasing its effectivenessHFLTA recommends performing only one Ballsitic technique per muscle group stretched in a given stretching session. These people are usually already flexible enough that the strong stretches produced by the isometric contraction have a much higher risk of damaging tendons and connective tissue.


As explained previously see section How Isometric Stretching Worksit helps to train the stretch receptors of the muscle spindle to immediately accommodate a greater muscle length.

Conceptualization of PhysioFun game: Low magnitude loads for extended periods of time increase the plastic deformation of the non-contractible tissue, allowing a gradual remodeling of the collagen connections and water redistribution for the neighbor tissues 5.

The structures and mechanisms which influence in the passive property of the muscle are: The three repetitions with PNF group joined with the six group, reached the significant difference concerning the initial measurements on the fifth day; besides that, the stretching with PNF group only reached such difference on the eighth day table 3.

Continuing to exercise when you are tired serves only to reset the nervous control of your muscle length at the reduced range of motion used in the exercise and will cause a loss of flexibility. Several studies observed the differences in rtaining techniques; the proprioceltive of them demonstrates advantage in the MAB gain for the stretching techniques that use PNF Efficacy of pre-activity stretching Michelle N Samuel Movement Articular Breadth MAB or joints mobility depends on facilitatjon peri and intra-articular soft tissues extensibility.

Rev Bras Med Esporte. It was then observed that the 3A F 1.
