Dunno if you guys’ve read the ‘6 weeks of squatting insanity’ article on TNation, but the guy who wrote it claimed to be in a similar boat to a lot of us - he was doing all of the planks, hip flexor stretches, glute bridges, dynamic mobility complexes …etc… forever, but then he stopped doing all of it and focused on max effort squatting every day for 6 weeks - despite not having good enough mobility to safely squat with maximal loads. That’s right, 6 weeks of pure maximal squatting with no stretching, no warmups and no mobility work.
The purpose was to allow himself to become injured and tight - excruciatingly tight, in fact. He claimed that his muscles became a rigid cast around his spine, and, when he finally stopped squatting for a week and went back to the mobility drills, his anterior pelvic tilt was gone, he was supple as a baby…etc…
In other words, he needed to injure himself and become tight to allow the mobility work to do its job.
Would you suggest doing a similar approach?
If not, what tweak did you give to your mobility work to suddenly make it do its job?
Thanks in advance!!
