Notes

You will probably notice many things as you try out each stretch. e.g. I have much more resistance on my right side compared to my left side in this stretch.

We recommend keeping track of these things as you progress in your flexibility. Select the notes icon ( ) throughout the site to keep notes on your stretching experiences.

Flex Check

We recommend that you check your flex to get a detailed profile of your strengths and weaknesses. Your flex check results will provide you with a guide for your stretching practice by revealing to you which parts of your self can use more flexibility, along with the specific stretches available to improve in just the ways you want. We recommend that you check your flex every three months to keep track of your progress as you continue to stretch. You can also check it more frequently should you so desire.
