UNLABELLED Static stretching with rest between repetitions is often performed to acutely increase joint flexibility. PURPOSE To test the effects of the lack of resting between stretching repetitions and the minimal number of stretching repetitions required to change the maximal range of motion (ROM), maximal tolerated joint passive torque (MPT), and submaximal passive torque at a given angle (PT). METHODS Five static stretching repetitions with a 30-s rest-interval (RI) and a no-rest… CONTINUE READING
