Stefi Cohen emphasizes that stretching alone is not protective against injuries. Contrary to what we were taught by our gym teachers, not stretching does not directly lead to hamstring tears, back issues, or shoulder problems.

Misconception of Tightness

The feeling of tightness is not an accurate indicator of the need to stretch. Both inflexible and flexible individuals can experience a sense of tight muscles. The sensation of tightness is primarily influenced by the nervous system's range of motion allowance, which can be limited by factors such as lack of exposure to certain ranges or past injuries.

Tightness Does Not Equal Injury

Stefi Cohen clarifies that tightness is not a sign of being injured. It is merely a subjective sensation that is more related to the nervous system's response than the actual length or condition of the muscle. Tightness alone should not be the sole basis for determining injury prevention measures.

Active Training and Injury Prevention

Actively training within new ranges of motion is crucial for injury prevention. Merely relying on stretching is insufficient. Engaging in exercises and activities that challenge and expand your range of motion is essential for maintaining flexibility and reducing the risk of injuries.

Understanding that stretching alone is not a guarantee for injury prevention, it is crucial to focus on effective training methods that actively challenge and expand our range of motion. Time should be dedicated to activities that promote overall fitness and well-being.
