Let’s preface I don’t want this turning into a stretching good, stretching bad type discussion. Long story short, 5/3/1 Forever and the subsequent workouts really opened my eyes to the concept of balance. Started doing various DeFranco mobility/warmups(humbling), mostly Agile 8 and Simple 6. To say I am far from flexible would be an understatement. Not looking to pull off some JCVD splits but want to start adding a flexibility day into my training. Any one have good recommendations for some stretching routines or would using Agile 8/Limber 11 type warmups be enough?

For a point of reference if I try the old school shoulder flexibility test, my hands are farther away from touching behind my back than peace in the middle east.

Some is always better than none, so good on you for at least doing defranco mobility stuff. Agile 8 is designed for low back pain mostly so check out limber 11 if you haven’t already. Also, worth looking at some free yoga apps. You’d be surprised what 10-15 minutes a couple times a week will do. I’m a big fan of it, not everyone is and I get that, but it definitely ticks multiples boxes for me, recovery, flexibility etc.
