Impact of PNF stretching on muscular flexibility in football

AUTHOR(S): Robin KV and Dr. YC Louis Raj
ABSTRACT:
This study was carried out to identify the acute effect of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching on the flexibility of hamstring muscles of Football players. Thirty players from Safa College, Valanchery (n = 30) were recruited to participate in this research. All 30 male subjects with mean age = 20.90 ± 1.03; mean height = 173.07 ± 6.73; mean weight = 65.33 ± 13.27. The experimental group went through a single session of PNF stretching. The flexibility of hamstring muscles were measured twice, pre-test and post-test using the sit and reach test. Results of current study revealed that a single session of PNF stretching induced significant improvement (t = -6.01, df = 29, p<.05) on flexibility of hamstring muscles. From the results of this study it revealed that a single session of PNF stretching on hamstring muscle is an effective and suitable method to improve the flexibility of hamstring muscles.
