Think you don't need to stretch? FRAID SO!

If you observe most animals, they instinctively stretch upon arising, and continue to do so throughout the day. People know they need to stretch, yet the list of excuses for NOT is seemingly endless. With that in mind, I have developed a stretching program that is based on the premise that people won't stretch, a sort of psychology of stretching. I have tried to remove all of the roadblocks on the path to a regular total-body stretching program.

A stretching program must be quick.

Most peoples' stretching attention-span is 6-7 minutes. A stretching program must be the most effective available. If a physical therapist or athletic trainer were to assist you in your stretching, you would do it on a regular basis since the other person can help you reach a range of motion that you could not achieve by yourself. A stretching program must be accomplished in the same order each time. It must become instinctive, so it better be easy to learn and easy to remember. Since people have a habit of conversing while they stretch, a set program lends itself to a much more enjoyable experience, since both can be accomplished simultaneously.

A stretching program needs something to constantly remind us that we to need to stretch.

I have addressed these needs in my FRAID NOTS? Rope-Assisted Stretching Program?. The 15 stretch, total-body program can be accomplished in 5-7 minutes. Each stretch is held for one breath, which is 8-10 seconds. People stretch better on the exhale, and I realize that in some cases a longer hold period would be in order, but I'm coming from the angle that people won't stretch, so don't push the time limit. If they like the stretch, they will hold it longer on their own, but at least I got them started. The FRAID NOTS? colorful rope acts as your stretching partner, giving you more leverage, a fighting chance, and a much better stretch and greater range-of-motion than you could accomplish without assistance.
