Developmental Stretching

Developmental Stretching is performed at the end of your exercise session. Developmental Stretches focus on increasing the muscle length or muscle flexibility. These stretches are held for an initial 6 to 10 seconds and then the stretch should be taken a bit further for another 20 to 30 seconds.

Developmental stretches are an excellent way of increasing your flexibility, usually performed after the main exercise session they are designed to improve your range of movement.

Developmental stretching isn't all about reaching new levels of flexibility and shouldn't be considered a specialist area of stretching. Anyone that has an incorrect posture or muscle cramp should look at using developmental stretches.
