Topic: The Science of Stretching

Have you ever questioned why we stretch our soft tissue before we train or compete? Did you know there are at least 8 different ways to stretch? How do you know which one is right? Should you stretch before you train, after, or not at all?

If you are looking for answers on reducing your athlete's muscular injuries, while enhancing their performance, this webinar is for you!

From this webinar you will:

• Acquire knowledge of how to better prepare your athletes for training and competition.
• Understand the mechanical and neurological stresses to soft tissue when it is being stretched.
• Know which type of stretching is the most appropriate at the right time during training and recovery.
