Partner Assisted Back Stretch - Martial Arts Stretching Exercise
This page provides details on a partner assisted back stretch. This type of stretch is used in martial arts training programs. Partner assisted stretches provided a deeper stretch than the standard static stretch. In this type of stretch, a partner GENTLY helps to push or pull a partner's limbs or body in order to maximize a stretch and improve overall flexibility. However, this type of stretch must be done slowly and responsibly in order to avoid potential injuries. Moreover, speak up & tell your partner to stop if the assisted stretch is starting to hurt.
All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional stretches, please visit the main Physical Fitness section.
