Introduction: Active Isolated Stretch - 6 Great Exercises

Active Isolated Stretching is another great flexibility technique that can help you improve your posture compensations. This video shares 6 great exercises to help you warm up and are also great for your corrective exercise workouts. It is imperative to perform SMR (foam rolling) before you perform active isolated stretching if you have movement compensations.

Active Isolated Stretching typically involves a full range of motion and a 1 to 2 sec hold at the end of the range. You typically can perform each exercise for 1 to 2 sets of 5 to 15 reps.

Below are the detailed information and time stamps for each exercise:

Exercise 1: Shoulder Stretch with a tennis ball, 1:50 hold 1 to 2 sec at the end of range of motion, 10 to 15 reps each side

Exercise 2: Shoulder Wall Slides with hold, 2:37 hold 1 to 2 sec at the end of range of motion, 10 to 15 reps total
