New video series exposes three secrets to increasing flexiblity

Recreational athletes often find it hard to get much benefit from stretching. A new 3 episode youtube series addresses three common roadblocks that keep people from stretching themselves to new lengths.
July 2, 2012 - PRLog -- Ask most amateur athletes what stretches they do, and you'll hear a lot of the same thing -- a mix of IT band stretches, forward hangs (trying to touch one's toes), and quick little shoulder stretches.  Ask those athletes if the stretches they do seem to change their level of flexibility, the answer you'll often hear is "no."  

It's very common for amateur athletes to see little or no gain from their stretching efforts. In the long term, this means they end up doing them half-heartedly or in ways that can actually do more harm than good.

A new youtube video series from Upright Health, 3 Secrets to Flexibility, seeks to change that.  

"It's a set of quick, simple, and straightforward videos that helps people understand why they don't see changes in their flexibility," says Matt Hsu, president of Upright Health and creator of the video series.  "Most people don't know what they have to do to get real changes in their flexibility, so when they don't see progress, they just assume they're not capable of getting more flexible. By spending five minutes watching these videos, people can get a lifetime's worth of more flexibility."

Viewers are encouraged to use the comment section to ask more detailed questions that aren't covered in the video series.

The three episode series is now available on youtube:
