I wanted to know other powerlifters opinions on static holds (planches, Manas, handstands) and yoga for stretching and keeping my muscles warm on my off days.
I used to do Allot of calesthetics, so I can still do all of these( exept the Mana because of flexibility issues). But I feel myself getting really tight in my joints as I push for higher numbers. (Both from lack of stretching and the amount of weight/strain put on them holding the weight) I was wondering what you guys thought of using these to stretch, core/stabilization accessory, and injury prevention. Or if you think it will worsen the problem. (I would do this briefly on my off days not complicate my workout)
