The steps involved in active stretching are very much like those for static stretching, except that the athlete’s own force is used to move the body part to be stretched and brings it into the appropriate stretching position. Stretch in a controlled manner. Hold the stretch position for 10 to 20 seconds. Repeat 2 to 4 times. If applicable, repeat the stretch for the other side of the body.
Flexibility, warm up, coordination
