PNF (Contract-Relax) Stretching/Flexibility Exercises
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation or PNF methods take several forms but typically involve an isometric contraction of the selected muscle/tendon group followed by a static stretching of the same group. Recommendation is 20%-75% maximum voluntary contraction held for 3-6 seconds followed by a 10-30 second assisted stretch. Perform 2-3 times per eek. Enjoy!!!
