I read a bunch of the stretching articles on the site but I would like to address my flexibility my thoroughly. --I was hoping someone could provide more info.
As a soccer player, I naturally have tight and bulky legs. I use alot of the hamstring, hip, and glute stretches shown on the site, but I don’t feel like Im making enough progress. Im in my 20s and still play, just not at the really high level that I used to play at.
Specifically, I want to stretch out my glutes (the top part of my butt where the small of the back is) so that I dont have such a protruding butt.
Also, I find that I have trouble getting my legs totally stright (ie: locking my knees if I wanted to) because my legs are bulky - how do I fix this? I understand this is a common problem with people with big legs but I am focused on fixing this.
Additionally, I want to lean out my legs - especially my quads, hips, and hamstrings so that pants/shorts look normal on me.
Thanks in advance for your help.
