What is StretchPro Resistance Stretching?

This one is for those interested in how StretchPro works. Just a little bit about the science of eccentric/concentric muscle contractions.


Transcript

StretchPro™ is a revolutionary technique which utilizes a person's own resistance for increasing lasting mobility. StretchPro™ uses scientifically-backed methods to reduce injury, balance muscle groups and increase flexibility using concentric exercises for strengthening and eccentric movements for stretching.

During StretchPro Resistance Stretching, the muscles are being contracted and lengthened at the same time, so the muscles are only taken as far as they can resist to keep stretching safely and effectively. The basic concept of StretchPro™ is that the muscles are strong throughout their ranges of motion–strength and flexibility go hand in hand keeping the muscles more stable and explosive. 

We've found that an "inflexible" muscle may actually be unable to stretch because of inactivated muscles, scar tissue or tightness elsewhere. The StretchPro method stresses the importance of working through these imbalances to release the muscles surrounding the problem area to allow for true flexibility and strength in full range surrounding the joints.

  • Benefits of StretchPro Resistance Stretching: 
  •  a scientifically-backed eccentric strength-training program
  • creates lasting gains in flexibility, strength and aerobic capacity
  • improves performance and recovery
  • creates more powerful, explosive, and core stable movements
  • realigns the body to improve posture
  • removes chronic joint stress, painful muscle tension and injuries
  • prevents injury from overstretching
  • targets specific areas of existing or potential injury

During StretchPro™ Resistance Stretching, the muscles are being contracted and lengthened at the same time, so the muscles are only taken as far as they resist, keeping stretching safe and effective.  The basic concept to StretchPro is that the muscles are strong THROUGHOUT their ranges of motion and it’s not how long they are, but whether they are strong throughout that length – strength and flexibility go hand in hand - keeping the muscles more stable and explosive.  Working with your spouse or friend, during assisted sessions, you can also utilize a technique of muscle, deep tissue, and fascia release called “Mashing” to help loosen up muscles, flush toxins, and get maximum results.

During Self-stretching you will be using your own body to provide resistance, and during assisted stretching sessions, the “trainer” will be providing resistance in unique movements that go deep in the joints to provide maximum flexibility and train you in everyday movements.  The StretchPro Trainer is essentially a very sophisticated piece of gym equipment providing both FLEXIBILITY and STRENGTH training.

This is the next evolution of fitness and is true full-body integration and centering.
