Video On Demand Active Isolated Stretching for Soccer
Active Isolated Stretching was created by world re-nouned kinesiologist Aaron L. Mattes. The sequence of the stretches using Active Isolated Stretching is meant to teach the Soccer player how to effectively stretch out their body and prepare them for activity. The stretches will take you from the upper body starting with the neck, down through the shoulders, then to the legs and ultimately to the feet. The video will teach you how to stretch the muscles that are being used in your sport. The exercises that we have chosen were done after many years of working with soccer players from the amateur and collegiate levels. Soccer is a power sport, the better the flexibility of the player, the more power they will potentially be able to exert during competition. You will see in the video that you are using one muscle group doing the active movement to help stretch the opposite side muscle group while only holding the stretch for 1 ½ to 2 seconds. You will only want to use 3-4 ounces of assistance by either your opposite hand or a stretching rope. The video will take you from one stretch to another allowing you to work along with the model.
