There’s no magic number for how long you should hold a stretch. Instead, medical research points to a time of about 10 to 30 seconds as best. And there’s a couple reasons for this:
Remember, no matter how long you hold your stretch, you should never bounce or hold your breath while you do it.
Stretches should be relaxed; increase the stretch gradually, but never to the point of pain. Take slow, relaxed breaths while stretching; exhale during the maximum points of the stretch. The breaths will help you feel more release of tension.
