Some people have limited flexibility, simply due to increased muscle and connective tissue mass, all gained with no flexibility training along the way in this case, a stretching routine is a good option to increase flexibility. Static-active flexibility (also called active flexibility) is the ability to assume and maintain extended positions using only the tension of the agonists and synergists while the antagonists are being stretched (see section cooperating muscle groups) for example, lifting the leg and keeping it high without any external support (other than. Muscular strength refers to the amount of force a muscle can produce and is usually measured by the maximum amount of force a muscle can produce in a single effort (maximal effort) the amount of muscle strength which can be achieved depends on gender, age, and inherited physical attributes.
