Age, Gender, and Stretching


Two new articles on stretching and flexibility are posted on The first is titled “Age and Stretching” and the second, “Gender and Stretching.”

In those articles I answer questions from athletes and martial artists on relation of age and gender to flexibility. Some older martial artists ask whether it is possible to improve flexibility at an advanced age. Some men ask whether women are naturally more flexible—perhaps looking for an excuse not to try a rational stretching method. Some women ask whether my stretching method will work for them as well as it works for men—as if women’s muscles and nerves were so different from men’s as to require completely different stretches.

Read the questions and my answers in those two articles posted at Flexibility Training for Sports and Martial Arts.
