Is it necessary to switch up stretching routines?

Carina Bohn
It’s not necessary but it would feel a lot better to have all your muscles stretched than just one or two, plus it would be pretty useless if only one muscle was flexible

Natalie Collins
Yes and no. You shouldn’t switch them like twice a week, but you definitely should search for a new one after you get comfortable with the old one. It’s like lifting weights – you won’t get better if you’ll constantly use the same weight 🙂

Not for no reason. My own reason is to lengthen the routine and to focus on more areas. Keeping a lengthened stretching routine can partially accommodate for any missed physical routine.

Hi. I believe it depends on your goals. If you actually have a specific muscle you know needs stretching I think you should get familiar with how to stretch it. And this can mean different ways of stretching. I also like to switch up every now and then. Just to create a different level of flexibility.
So I think its good but only "NECESSARY" when needed and if there is a specific issue or reason. You can do the same stretch for months and it can and should start to feel different because now you are more flexible and comfortable. But by all means if it is too painful stretch only to you capacity. Also, adding in stretches can be considered as switching it up, which is completely cool, yet again noy Neccessary! As long as you stretch the entire body and especially the areas you feel is most needed, you should be fine! 😊Thank you for your question! I hope this helps.

Yes, so you don't have an imbalance if flexibility in your muscles. Which makes me think, I should learn a different technique for stretching!

It's good to switch it after you feel totally comfortable with the old routine. It’s like with lifting weights – you won’t get better by lifting the same weight all the time 😉

Absolutely not! However, if you are only focused on stretching a specific muscle and only stretching that muscle when you do stretches, then yes. If you are doing a full body stretch then no, it is not necessary to change it up because the point is to stretch you muscles.

If you are looking to work out your muscles, then it’s necessary to change your routines to merely prevent your body from getting used to the motions you are putting it through and gain something from the movements you are doing.

If you are only stretching, you can do the same stretches every day. It’s more beneficial, and you will notice your progress more easily than if you switch up your routines.
