Hi Al,

Thanks for your inquiry. It's a pleasure to help and I hope the following is beneficial.

Firstly, have a read through the following article... will give you the basics you need to get the most out of stretching.

Secondly, if you want to get into boxing or MMA, have a read through the following 2 articles. They both contain information about preventing injuries and the top 3 recommended stretches for each sport.


Thirdly, if you want some videos of stretching routines that you can follow along to, take a look at our stretching videos page here...

And lastly, there's a few stretching tools that will help... I would suggest the StretchStrap and the ProStretch.

I hope the above has been helpful. For more information on stretching, flexibility and sports injury management, visit Injury Fix.
