Thus, the objectives of this review has been I) collect the information needed to argue for the inclusion of flexibility programs in healthy training programs, II) establish general recommendations for healthy workout flexibility training. To this end, we have conducted a search in the MedLine database and SportsDiscus. We retrieved articles that were reference to flexibility training using the static method for healthy training. Of the articles selected found can highlight the importance of training more frequently than 2 days a week, with a moderate light intensity for 10-30 seconds. 10-12 exercises will be selected so as to cover the entire body.
