How much important is stretching?
Do you stretch regularly? How old are you? Does stretching becomes more important as you get old?
What's your stretching routine?
I'll start doing starting stretching tomorrow.
After doing SL for like 4 weeks I started noticing how bad my flexibility really was. I started stretching pretty regularly and am so glad I did. Helps me achieve better form and feel less prone to injury.
I do 4 main exercises for stretching. Don't know the names of them, or if they have names, maybe you guys know?:
1. Get on my hands and knees and arch spine fully, then round spine fully, repeat both 10 times.
2. Also on hands & knees: the dog pissing movement where you lift one leg out the to side and the opposite arm to the side, then alternate. Repeat 10 times each side.
3. Reach down to the floor from standing position, walk my hands forward til i'm in a plank, then walk my feet in tiny steps back up to my hands. Repeat 10 times.
4. Lunges aaaaaalll the way til my back knee almost touches the floor, and reach the opposite arm up to the ceiling. Repeat 10 times.
considering you dont know anything about stretching i'd say you aren't qualified to make that claim
>/fit/ give me a stretching program so I can get super flexible but I have to be doing super cool stretches and it cant take longer than 1 minute a day
