Have you thought about modifying your stretching patterns when your activity changes drastically to create more balance in your body and perform at your best?

In my short video, I discuss making adjustments in your stretching, which is particularly important when you’re on vacation, and how to do it.

Maybe, you’re getting away for the winter in a warmer climate and playing golf or tennis which forces you to focus on one side of your body over the other.

It’s really important to check in with your stretching program so that you can avoid postural distortions.

Remember, your stretching program is all about supporting balance and creating better motor control and musculoskeletal efficiency in your body.

If you’re doing your stretching in between exercises or the sport you’re performing, that’s great! However, don’t forget the body holds a tone when it’s been stimulated by exercise for about four hours.

This means you may not achieve the complete mobility or flexibility from stretching that you would if your body was calm.

With a little help from my video, I’ll briefly explain how you can get the most out of your stretching and prepare your body for extra play time on the slopes, ocean or tennis court.
