There are a number of differences between standard stretching techniques and Zaichik Stretching techniques.
- The most obvious feature is the fact that the Zaichik Stretching technique use a concept of Target and Leverage. Taking advantage of the fact that each muscle is unique and is responsible for a specific sum of actions on one or more joints.
However today's video is demonstrating an advantage of using Zaichik stretching to achieve a skill, as opposed to using standard stretching techniques.
Wrist flexion is used an example. More specifically a gymnastics skill called False Grip, part of which is a well developed anatomical flexion of the wrist and fingers.
Without exploring the kinesiology, on the surface it looks like the thumb movers have no association with the skill. However as the video explains, two muscles that move the thumb also extend the wrist. Neglecting to address them, can hold back the progression of the skill.
Same principle applies to many other skills.
The video explains.
