Course Description

Jules delivers the latest scientific research on the merits and misconceptions of stretching in this 40 minute lecture. She finds that most people believe they “should stretch more” because they think it will solve x, y, or z. But will stretching deliver what it promises? Find out more about what stretching is, how it works, what it can do, and what it does not do. Jules cites recent research on the topic which might contradict what your high school coach told you or what the internet says. Even if you’re current on all things stretching, you’ll find some gems in the literature she reviews.
