Hi, I'm Shane Freels with LIVESTRONG.com. Today, we're going to cover several good exercises on how to be more flexible for soccer. Flexibility comes through active and dynamic range of motion. Static flexibility means you're holding a contracted state for a long period of time. That only is necessary at the end of a workout. So you don't want to start a workout where you just sit and you just reach and you just hold. You want to get ready for soccer by doing something active. You want to get you in a warmup lap, make sure you have good blood flow going and get those muscles nice, warm and loose then you add the flexibility aspect to it. So I'm going to walk you through a couple exercises. The first one I would like to show is what we call a soldier walk. You can do these traveling or you can do them standing in place. So this is a great one. It's opposite arm, opposite leg and you are just swinging and you are reaching and what that is going to do is actively stretching the hamstring okay. So like I said, make it your own, walking or standing in place. Now here is a little bit more of a dynamic. You're going to bounce. Now when I bounce, it's going to add a little bit more power and speed to it. So that's a great one for the hamstrings. Another one I like is what I call a drummer boy. You can start out just doing it nice and easy like a good active stretch. This is going to be for your glutes, okay, and the hip region, grab the shin, hand underneath thigh, good stretch, shoulders back, dynamic, bounce, bounce, bounce. Now I'm really swinging that leg up to really activate and get that range of motion. Another one I really like, lateral lunge, step out, stretch the inner thighs, okay. You've got to really work those adductors, make sure they are good and loose and shifting your weight side to side, okay. And you can hold it for just a second count, okay. Now then to make it a little bit more dynamic, you can go into what we call a jump skater. So you're reaching and now we're going to work up the outer side, the abductors, okay and I'm also working ankle flexibility and stability at the same time. Again we're working on movement that's going to get the body ready for explosive movement when you are playing soccer, okay. Another great one is a quad stretch, just a nice easy quad reach. I do these traveling so I'm walking and reaching, okay, walking and reaching. You can also add in something like inchworm where you're going to walk out, walk in. It's another great active flexibility stretch for hamstrings. So you're going to hands to the ground, keep your palms flat on the floor, walk it all the way out and then walk it in. Never letting your hands come off the ground, keeping your legs straight, back out and back in. I'm Shane Freels and we just showed you several good exercises on how to be more flexible for soccer. Have an amazing day.
