Stretching is an individual thing.
Listen to your body. Stretching is an individual thing.
Pay attention to your body's signals and don't push too far. Avoid bouncy stretching and jerking movements to gain momentum; this approach can be dangerous. Instead, slowly stretch your muscles to the end point of movement and hold the stretch for about 10 to 30 seconds. Older adults, pregnant women and people with injuries may need to take special precautions.
