Functional Stretch Clinic Description:
“Join the Functional stretch clinic as Coach Melanie Ortanez (Personal Trainer, Coach, F45 Coach, former Physical Therapy Assistant, and Corrective Exercise Specialist) spend time with you utilizing tools that are ideal to perform before a workout, after a workout, and/or indoor or outdoor physical activities. I will teach you how to properly and safely execute a combination of effective stretching techniques you can do and serves as both as a warm up, cool down, and stretching all in one. These include foam rolling, active isolated stretching, dynamic stretching, and static stretching to maximize strength, maximize performance, improve posture, and prevent any injuries.
As your strength train muscles become sore and tight, keeping the muscles within normal flexibility parameters will help your musculoskeletal system be more stable, balanced and symmetrical. Poor flexibility will promote compensatory muscle recruitment and imbalances, which lead to biomechanical breakdown during activity. Not having good mobility, stability and flexibility will prevent you from performing exercises such as the back squat, rows, pressing motions, and deadlifts with good mechanics and set you up for injury. Stretching also helps decrease the risk of pulled muscles, joint displacement and torn tendons and ligaments.” - 23 minutes ago
