Yoga and Biomechanics: A New View of Stretching Part 2 [Article]

Last time, Part 1 of this article looked at the interplay between flexibility, stretching and yoga and what type of stretches to do depending on the desired outcome. Part 2 here further discusses some commonly used terms, such as tight/loose, strong/weak and short/long, and elaborates on the biomechanics of what happens to muscles when they are loaded under tension, as well as muscle length and eccentric contraction. This article has been extracted from chapter 2 of the author’s book Yoga and Biomechanics: Stretching Redefined.
