I understand that it may take some time to restore lost mobility, as I have never been really flexible since I was a kid (I am currently 22 years old). My hips and positional strength (upright torso in the bottom of any type of Olympic style squat) are my limiting factors in gaining strength right now. Though I am learning the technique of the Sn and C&J by myself (doing PVC/ broomstick and empty bar work everyday) I think that a major limiting factor for me is mobility, especially in the hips... when dropping under the bar my body almost hesitates to catch because my hips are tight. Hitting solid bottom positions in the front/high bar squat, with even light weight, takes 100% focus on upright posture, and once the weight hits a certain point I lose that powerful arch. This is despite daily stretching of tight areas of the hips and dip belt squats for mobility.
I understand that regaining mobility will take lots of time, but even though I dedicate about 20 minutes per day almost everyday, I have seen very little improvement over the last few weeks. Just wondering if anyone has any tips for me.
Thanks in advance!
