Flexibility for contact sports

Flexibility for contact sports

Are you a great athlete but flexibility is not your thing? Do you wake up in the morning and have a hard time doing everyday things like putting on your socks? You have time to change all this by increasing your elasticity!

At Tagoya we know that one of the keys to maintaining optimal physical conditions is having good elasticity, and that is why we show you its importance and how you should work on it.

Benefits of working on elasticity

  • Helps prevent injuries: Depending on the sport you practice, it can be very demanding with sudden changes in direction or extension movements. Therefore, having a wide range of motion means that we will be less likely to push our muscles and joints to the limit, which reduces the risk of injury.
  • Improves sports performance: When our muscles have a great capacity to lengthen and acquire a greater range of movements, they also need less energy to perform the routes, which can make a difference in professional athletes.
  • Facilitates the routine of older people: Training flexibility allows older people to continue carrying out their daily activities with ease, such as bending down to put on their socks or tying their shoes, since over the years there is a reduction in muscle mass and ligaments and tendons lose elasticity.

Recommendations to gain elasticity

  • Warm up properly: Getting into the habit of warming up properly before your workouts will increase your flexibility during the session and also in the long term, since large amplitude movements are carried out in muscle activations.
  • Stretch: The best way to gain elasticity is by stretching. There are many stretches and some are truly effective, such as the hamstring stretch or the cat pose. It is important that you repeat the stretches for at least 30 seconds.
  • Practice sports such as karate, taekwondo or jujitsu: Playing sports helps train flexibility, and even more so if you choose disciplines that force you to make large extensions with your arms and legs. Karate, taekwondo and jujitsu are excellent options for gaining flexibility due to the continuous flexion and extension of the limbs they require.
