Flexibility

MELTING THE ICE (Flexibility) & CONTORTION

The two main methods of flexibility training at Chicago Academy of Pole & Dance are Static (stretching while the body is at rest) and Dynamic (active stretching). Stretching is an important component of any fitness routine. With improved flexibility comes enhanced performance and muscular conditioning. Stretching regularly also reduces the risk of injury because of the body’s enhanced ability to move through a wider range of motion.
