Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation

Learn how to use PNF Stretching to take your Flexibility to the next level.

What is PNF Stretching?
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is a more advanced form of flexibility training that involves both the stretching and contraction of the muscle group being targeted.

PNF stretching was originally developed as a form of rehabilitation, and to that effect it is very effective. It is also excellent for targeting specific muscle groups, and as well as increasing flexibility, (and range of movement) it also improves muscular strength.

Taken from The Stretching Handbook, read the rest here.

  1. 185#+4 pairs of chains. Could've gone a little heavier, maybe 190. Didn't want to push it too much today.

    10 Rounds as Rx'ed. Slowed myself down a little on this one. I was hoping for 8 rounds but had plenty of time left over and didn't want to do more than 100 pull ups.
