Isometric Stretching

Postby teotjunk » Jun 16, 2007 16:42

In the book scientific stretching, it is stated that we should pick only one isometric stretch per muscle group. In the section on isometric stretching, he listed two different exercises for the neck, two different exercises for the forearm and three different exercises for the arms, shoulder and chest. Can I utilize all seven different exercises in one single isometric stretching session or should i only pick one for the neck, one for the foreman and one for the arms, shoulders and chest ?Thanks

You confuse muscle groups (flexors, extensors, etc.) with body parts (neck, arm, forearm, etc.).

I have another question. Even if I do one stretch per major muscle group and assuming 45 seconds per stretch, I can't complete all stretching of major muscle groups in 10 minutes. I understand that for different sports you put different emphasis on which muscles to stretch but is it possible to come up with a generic list of stretching exercises that is applicable to all sports and can be done in 10 minutes
