Section 1: The Conceptual Approach to Flexibility
01:18

You're as old as your joints! This series will take you through a group of practical flexibility routines you can use to accompany your training.

Following that, there will be five routines that serve as warm-ups and cool-downs for you to use along with your training.

01:17

Before you go for a Run, don't you usually Stretch? Well what exactly are you doing when you "Stretch"? In this video, you'll learn exactly what you're doing with this approach as well as how this approach can be counter-intuitive.

01:19

The Pose Method has a unique approach that we call "Flexibility." In this video, you'll learn what this approach is all about and how changing your focus from pulling at your muscles to flexing your joints is the desired approach to open and close a training session.

01:13

With a well understood idea of what flexibility is and how it's beneficial, the final step for you before you put it into practice is understanding how to integrate it into your training sessions. In this video, you'll learn what your mindset should be when using flexibility as a warm-up and how that approach should be different when you're using flexibility as a Cool-Down.
