The different types of stretching are:
- ballistic stretching.
- dynamic stretching.
- active stretching.
- passive (or relaxed) stretching.
- static stretching.
- isometric stretching.
- PNF stretching.
Types of stretching
- Static stretching is the most common. PNF stretching, muscle energy techniques, ballistic stretching, and neural stretching are other types. Static stretching is the type of stretching where you take a muscle to its outer range until you can feel a gentle stretch in the muscle belly and hold it at that point.

What are the 4 types of stretches?
There are four types of stretching – active stretching, passive stretching, dynamic stretching, and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching, which involves table stretching.
What is P and F stretching?
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is an advanced form of flexibility training, which involves both the stretching and contracting of the muscle group being targeted. PNF stretching is one of the most effective forms of stretching for improving flexibility and increasing range of motion.

What are 3 stretches?
When it comes to stretching, there are three main techniques: static, dynamic, and ballistic stretching.
What are 8 muscles?
Your body’s major muscles can be divided into eight groups: shoulders, arms, chest, abdomen, back, butt, thighs and calves.
What are passive stretches?
Passive stretching is a technique in which you are relaxed and make no contribution to the range of motion. Instead, an outside agent creates force, either manually or mechanically. Examples include using a towel, band, gravity or another person to help you stretch.
