You Will Need
- Internet access
- Dynamic stretching
Set up a schedule
Set up a stretching routine to perform three to four times a week supplemented by additional time twice a day to work on your flexibility. Search online for ideas to get started.
Avoid bouncing as you stretch, and stay balanced by stretching muscle pairs, such as quadriceps or hamstrings, at the same time.
Talk to a trainer
Ask a trainer at your gym to help you develop a stretching plan that is within your ability and that doesn't tax your body or stress your joints.
Try dynamic stretch
Do some dynamic stretching that actively engages your muscles, ligaments, and tendons with a specific set of movements instead of simple static stretches.
Stay consistent and dedicated to your plan. You may not see results overnight, but, after a few months, you'll experience less pain and more agility in sports, dancing, and everyday tasks.
