Good stuff. I really like that stretch. I'm pretty tight there on my right side too. I'm definitely going to incorporate that stetch into my program now. Stretch 5 is the one I said I did for the anterior capsule, except I use a nylon strap. They say "posterior/superior," which makes more sense because you're going into internal rotation and adduction.
The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
Some ppl sweear by dynamic streching and others really totally oppose.
Ideally I'd think if you haave poor flexibility and are bringing in a stretching program that isokentic would probably both the safest and most effective way to go.. where you're strechting from diffrent angles and lengths on the same group or limb ..particularly if the muscle or limb is being worrked from different angles..
Hell yEs a good stretch sesh can feel awesome!.. good comment whoever said that.
would you guys mind posting your entire stretching regime? When you do the stretches, how you place them around your different training sessions and for each bodypart? And what you do on your off days. I would love to view them.
I wouldn't statically stretch pre-workout. A dynamic warm up of active stretching or movement training is crucial IMO though.
I love sretching, although they kill the shit our of my muscles! I do hanging lifts with stretching, and I do with lat pullups & dips. I don't do Swiss balls or steps.
Yep, I do the deadlifts, the squats, that keep me disclipined to get proper form (I ache day, each fucking day .. did each FUCKING DAY? ).
But I'm stretching ALWAYS! Damn! Why the f*ck am I stretching my abs, pecs, lats ... at night, waking me up at sleep? Always? ( My wife seems to accept the agressive grabs... but that is negotiable. Go figure.! (She must be a gem.)
i don't know but the knew thing is not to strech before workouts now because they say you are loosing the mucles and tendens around joints and you can loose control and hurt yourself you should stech after a workout or after you are done with your sets so that is what i have learned now i still strech before i workout but some of my cleints like to after wards and they have had good results so take as you will that is the now thing
