Flexibility Stretching Test How Much Flexibility Do You REALLY NEED?

So how much flexibility do you really need? www.EasyFlexibility.com

Say you want a 180 degree Penche or a Side Tilt. Or to hold a head high Martial Arts Kick to your friends face.

If you can do full split is that enough for a 180 Tilt?
Is being able to stretch to your buddy's head, enough for the kick you want?

The answer is no. See the video and read further explanation below:



Muscle resistance starts long before the end range. How high can you lift your arm overhead? Can it go higher if someone helped you?

Chances are: Yes.

That is because your lats and other muscles pull down, like elastic bands. Same thing happen at your hip, core, ankle, etc.

The more you go past the relaxed range, the more antagonists (deltoids to lats, hip flexors to hamstrings, abductors to adductors) will pull back down. And to get a better relaxed range, you need more flexibility.

For example (not to scale) 150 degree max range, the resistance starts at 110-120, sometime even under 10
