15 min Follow-Along Active-Isolated (AIS) Stretching

Welcome! Thank you for joining me today! 😊

I shot this video a few years ago while enjoying some time on the beautiful Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota, Florida.

I don’t believe Active Isolated Stretching is necessarily an effective way to change joint function or even improve passive flexibility – but I absolutely believe it CAN BE A great way to counteract some tightness which can come out of our lifestyle OR our sports…

…if you approach it with that in mind, you may find it is extremely helpful AND enjoyable.

In some respects, this could be referred to as a “running specific” routine, because I focus in on the areas that can become tight/short from running…such as the hamstrings, hips, and low-back. BUT…even if you aren’t a runner, it will feel great to go through all of these!

You’re welcome and encouraged to follow along, pausing whenever you would like to spend a little bit more time on each stretch and position.

Remember, as I have mentioned in this area before, I’ve got a lot of miles on my body!

Please keep in mind that most of these are quite challenging for me. After all, I’m 60 years old with a lot of running miles on my chassis! Mobility and flexibility will always be a work in progress for me as a result.

If you’re finding you have even more difficulty with these than I do, then you most certainly will benefit from some extra time and energy spent in this important area.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch if I can assist with anything!
