20 Minute Stretching Routine
Flexibility is a very important part of your Taekwondo training and helps improve your general techniques, balance and will also help you avoid injury.
Below is simple routine that if practiced regularly will aid you in improving your flexibility. Once a day is best however at least three times a week (not including training) should be your absolute minimum.
Good times to stretch are after light exercise or after a warm shower or bath. The stretches listed above get progressively harder so providing you follow the order and stretch sensibly a warm up is not necessarily required.
If you are not sure how to do any of the below stretches, ask your instructor for guidance.
1 – Hamstring Stretch
2 – Hurdle Stretch
3 – Groin & Hip Stretch
4 – Forward Stretch
5 – Box Stretch 1
6 – Box Stretch 2
“There are many books and articles on stretching but none will help you more than spending less time reading about stretching and more time just stretching.”
