I recently purchased the Alex Larsson Hyperbolic Stretching Program this is my Alex Larsson Hyperbokic Stretching Review.
I am a dance teacher, and I bought the program to try out on myself and my students. I am over fifty now, so I have been getting a bit stiffer over the years, and I thought that I really need to loosen up so that I can stay flexible and mobile well into my old age.
Why Is It important To Stretch?
A good stretching routine is very important for flexibility, range of motion and injury prevention. Incorporating stretching into your daily workouts is a given but including it in your day routine is just as important to health and body functioning as regular exercise.
Stretching relaxes your muscles and increases blood flow and nutrients to your cartilage and muscles.
As you get older you lose mobility in your joints and your muscles stiffen. It is important to stay flexible so that you can enjoy a pain free and more mobile old age.
There are of course many other benefits including the following:
- the burning of extra calories naturally without heart-rate overload.
- being more flexible means you can work in your garden with ease.
- the ability to sleep more comfortably without those niggling body aches.
- the great feeling of being relaxed and loose, yet stable and strong enough to play with your grand kids.
- the benefit of decompressing your nerves and muscles so you can move more freely.
- your posture improving and you will naturally stand taller.
- you being able to lift heavier objects with less risk of injury.
- increasing your pelvic floor strength which helps your bladder.
What Is Hyperbolic Stretching?
The Alex Larsson Hyperbolic Stretching Review
Hyperbolic stretching is a different approach to stretching. It is based on movement, stretching and strengthening the muscles to gain not only flexibility, but also the strength to support your newly found flexibility.
As a dance teacher, I notice that a lot of the flexibility training has moved towards this way of stretching. The idea when you stretch is to strengthen the opposite muscles to the ones you are trying to stretch. So for instance if you want to loosen up your hamstrings, you would do this at the same time as strengthening your quads and your hip flexors.
This program is great for all age groups and fitness levels. This method is also great for improving athletic performance in the following ways:
- Dancers can improve their split jumps without the need to warm up.
- Yoga is made easier and you will be able to master advanced asanas sooner.
- Runners can boost their range of motion. The same goes for cyclists and body builders.
- Stretching helps to reduce soreness after strength training workouts.
- Unlocking the hip flexors has a whole range of benefits attached.
- Improving your overall athletic performance and sharpen you technique.
This Is What I Got When I Purchased Hyperbolic Stretching:
The introduction and helpful tips included videos on how often to do the split stretches, as well as important tips and workarounds for the programs on the system.
The front split videos are aimed at beginners and are for the first week of the program.
After that you can go on with front split week 2, 3 and 4 which gradually get more advanced. Alex says the average person will be able to do the splits in a month providing you use these videos about three times a week. They are easily implemented into my daily routine as they are about 8 to 10 minutes long. Personally I give myself two months to get flat, especially when it comes to side splits.
Next up it is into the side splits. Alex recommends alternating these videos with the front split videos for best results. As for the front splits, the side split series also as four weeks worth of programs to follow.
The next two videos get you into those pikes, which have always been difficult for me, due to my short hamstrings, but I was amazed to feel an improvement after only two sessions.
The upper body stretching is one I haven’t tried personally yet, but my husband is working on them to try to improve his golf swing.
The final two videos that are in the series are Dynamic Stretching and easy bridge routines. I have been trying them out on a couple of my students and the results are speaking for themselves. This is also probably due to the fact that they are all under the age of twenty and already quite supple, but what I like about this program is that the exercises are making them a lot stronger too. But it definitely works more quickly on the younger bodies.
I normally don’t do upsells, but this is one I couldn’t resist. For a mere $15 extra I got these extra programs included:
- Flexikeeper Basic and Advanced – routines to maintain your flexibility once you have reached your goals.
- Bedtime Routine – some great exercises that you can do in the comfort of your bed at night before you go to sleep. These are great if you suffer from joint pain at night.
- Morning Mobility Routine – great to get you moving in the mornings.
- Athletic Super Warmup – great to do before your normal exercise workouts.
Hyperbolic Stretching Pros:
Flexibility has many advantages. Exercises that stretch and lengthen your muscles are very good for your body and your overall health. You get increased flexibility and range of motion, as well as build strength in your muscles.
Well stretched hamstrings for instance will prevent back pain. You will also improve your balance and stretching is a great way to release tension at the end of the day.
You can use Alex Larssons Hyperbolic Stretching Program anywhere and at any time. Most of the routines are eight minutes or less, and if you are really in a hurry there is also a 3-minute routine you can do.
You don’t need any equipment, apart from maybe a towel to rest your knee on and a chair to hold onto.
Hyperbolic stretching produces quite fast results. I can already feel my hips are looser after only a week on the program. But we all know results could differ from person to person because we all have different bodies and some have more limitations than others.
The Alex Larsson Hyperbolic Stretching Program is reasonably priced for the content it delivers (less than $30). There are a few upsells that are offered. I took the end of day up sell for an extra $15 as I wanted something to add in at the end of the day.
For the amount of information and the quality of the videos that Alex provides the price is really reasonable.
However, you have nothing to lose as the program is backed up with a two-month guarantee. This is plenty of time to put the Hyperbolic Stretching Program to the test for yourselves, and if you are not happy you can claim a full refund.
When you purchase this product, you will get it straight way and it is in video format, so you can follow along with Alex.
Hyperbolic Stretching Cons:
If you have chronic medical issues, this program may not be for you. In fact if you are unsure, please check with your doctor to make sure that all the exercises are safe for you to do.
This course is delivered in video format and there are no printables for those that prefer a book. But the exercises are easy to remember and you will only need to use the videos a couple of times before you won’t need them anymore.
The main con is you need to motivate yourself to use the course and not just buy it and forget about it. Maybe get together with a friend so that you can hold each other accountable so that you actually commit to doing the exercises regularly. You won’t see an improvement unless you knuckle down and do the exercises.
Alex claims that after you’ve gone through the Hyperbolic Stretching program and are flexible enough, you only need to stretch once a week to maintain your flexibility. Being a dancing teacher, I somehow think you need to do it more than once a week, but I will test this theory out.
There is also an up sell to purchase one of his five minute maintenance programs that you can choose to get after you have gone through is stretching program. You can choose to buy this when you purchase the course or at a later date.
The course includes:
1 – FlexiKeeper routines – keep your flexibility, splits, pancakes and even V-splits forever by stretching just twice a week.
2 – Warrior Warmups (you’re gonna love these).
So if you are aiming to improve your flexibility and your muscle strength, then this may be just the thing you are looking for. The best part is you don’t need hours, only a few minutes a day and you will feel better than you have in a long time.
Considering the low price and the 60-day guarantee, I believe that this course is well worth a try, no matter what your age.
I hope you have enjoyed reading this Alex Larsson Hyperbolic Stretching Review.
