Unionville RMT for Stretching and Resistance Exercises

What is Resistance Stretching?

Resistance stretching is a dynamic method that aims to enhance both flexibility and strength at the same time.

Unlike traditional static stretching, resistance stretching is a method that actively engages your muscles, making your stretching routine more effective and potentially leading to better results.

Whether you’re recovering from an injury or looking to improve your physical health, a registered massage therapist can help you learn proper resistance stretching techniques to optimize your muscular health and function.

Resistance Band Exercises

Resistance band stretching exercises are a convenient and easy way to incorporate resistance stretching into your fitness routine.

Resistance bands are large elastic bands with a range of resistance levels, so you can increase the challenge as your strength and flexibility improve.

Here are some simple resistance band exercises:

  • Banded Squats: Stand on the center of the resistance band with feet hip-width apart. Hold the ends at shoulder height, palms forward. Squat down, keeping your chest up, then return to the starting position.
  • Banded Rows: Secure the band to a stable anchor at chest height. Hold the ends, arms extended. Pull the band towards the chest, elbows close to the body, and return to the start.
  • Banded Glute Bridges: Lie on your back, knees bent, feet flat. Place the band above your knees. Lift your hips off the floor, squeezing your glutes, and then lower back down.

Resistance bands are great for individuals of all fitness levels, and you can easily customize your workouts based on your needs and goals.
