Active isolated stretching provides effective, dynamic stretching of major muscle groups. Taking it a step further, AIS aids in the functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes. Where exactly did AIS originate? Well, injury rehabilitation professionals are starting to turn away from the notion that stretching should last up to 60 seconds. Interestingly, though, prolonged static stretching decreases blood flow, creating localized lactic acid buildup. Over time, this can cause irritation or injury of local muscular tissues.

Active Isolated Stretching Technique

Here’s what to expect with AIS. By performing a stretch of no longer than two seconds, you enable your target muscles to properly lengthen without triggering the protective stretch reflex and forthcoming muscle contraction as the isolated muscle achieves a state of relaxation. You can feel at ease knowing that this stretch provides maximum benefit and can be accomplished without opposing tension or trauma.
