This is a complete list of stretches or flexibility exercises to be performed in a workout. If you are unsure of how to implement these into your training program, please read:

Flexibility is defined as a joint’s ability to move freely through a full and normal range of motion (ROM).

Static Stretching This refers to passive stretching where a stretch is held in a specific location for a certain time.

Ballistic aka. Bouncing Stretching: Dynamic muscular movements, such as a bouncing bent over hamstring stretch. (advanced athletes.)

Stretching is extremely important for general health and to prevent injuries during daily life and exercise. Also remember that a longer muscle is a stronger muscle.

When should you stretch? Always static stretch when your muscles are warm (after exercising). Perform dynamic (Arm circles, trunk rotations etc.) stretching before exercise.
