Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is an advanced stretching technique employed to improve muscle elasticity and range of motion. There are 3 common types of PNF techniques and we are introducing just one in the video - contract | relax | stretch. How to do it? For example after a good warm up or workout: Hamstrings with a partner Contract: a partner provides resistance as you contract the muscle and push the leg down static to the floor. One fifth of your maximum strength for 5 seconds. Then relax for a second and inhale Stretch: a partner does you a favor while exhaling. Hold for up to 30s and then start over at least 2-5 sets total. Perform just one exercise per muscle group. Shoulders, chest, hip flexors, hamstrings and sides in the video, but we're hopeful that you can figure out how to do more. Give it a try and tell us if it works. We promise it will!
