Flexibility for MMA and Muay thai


Why is it that some people recommend dynamic stretching and yoga for flexibility versus static stretching and static yoga?


I do both.

For me both work. I’ll do yoga/stretch straight out of bed. Go to the gym, hit weights, I typically wide squat/Zercher Squat/Front Squat wide to a low box/Sumo Deadlift. My training is set-up in a Conjugate/Westside for mma fashion. I’ll kickbox before and after training whether it be lower or upper day. Starting with low kicks and slowly picking up the power and height of my kicks. This makes me feel the best and opened up for me.
