Hey all, I just wanted some advice on my current stretching regime.
I’ve read through alot of the stuff by Kurz at http://stadion.com/column.html , watching his video Stretching Scientifically, and Magnificient Mobility by Cressey and Robertson, and done some searches on this and other forums.
I’m currently training Muay Thai, and my goals are to become flexible enough in the hips/legs to be able to throw high kicks with ease. A secondary goal is being able to squat ass to grass, at the moment I can squat abit past legal powerlifting squat depth, but not enough to get olympic style, ass to grass.
Basically I do joint rotations as outlined by Kurz in stretching scientifically. Then I do 1 set each of 6-8 of the dynamic stretches from Magnificient Mobility, mostly for hips and legs. At the end I do leg raises, front, side, and back. 3 sets each legs, 12 reps, as outlined by Kurz. I do this 2 times a day.
Is there anything I should add that would improve my flexibility at a better rate, or is what I’m doing “good” to reach my current goals? Do I need static stretching at all to reach any of my goals?
