Difference Between Occlision & Extreme Stretching

Difference Between Occlision & Extreme Stretching
Hi Scott,

I am struggling to understand the difference between the above. I have found decent visual instructional materials on extreme stretching but when I try to search for occlusion stretching I pretty much get the same thing. Could you kindly enlighten me on the difference between the two and perhaps point me in the direction of some visual aids for the Occlusion side of things?

Really appreciate it, thank you.

Have you read the descriptions in the e-book, starting around page 42?... Smile

Certainly have...

Occlusion Stretch The Occlusion Stretch would be a stretch with the intention of creating metabolic stress as a hypertrophic stimulus. You should be able to feel this as that beloved burning sensation in the muscle during the stretch. The occlusion stretch is not intended to increase range of motion per se, but rather a continuous, moderate effortisometric contraction of a stretched, totaling 60-90 seconds. Ideally, the Occlusion Stretch is occurs over one continuous, fairly “uncomfortable” period, although you may need to break the stretch up into two shorter segments. Features of the Occlusion Stretch:
• Is performed within a minute or two after fnishing training a given muscle group, when the muscle is still pumped up.
• Includes a moderate isometric contraction to foster metabolite accumulation (metabolic stress).
• Is intuitive in terms of angle of stretch and joint position. You might focus the stretch and contraction to create metabolic accumulation where you don’t already feel a pump from the preceding exercise.
• Does NOT attempt to improve range of motion per se.
• May very often be unilateral.
• Lasts 60-90s in total for a muscle group.


And all that makes sense to me, just translating it into a practical application correctly is what I am not sure about.

OK, so I'll make it as simple as possible.

An occlusion stretch is a stretch where you contract the muscle at the same time. (It's an isometric contraction against something that won't move no matter hard you contract).

An extreme stretch involves holding an external load when the muscle is in a stretched position.

There are more details that you might ask, but they're all there in the book, I believe...

Simple works for me and that has helped a lot, thank you.
