I never intended to join this post, I didn't want to either. I wanted to achieve what I must on my own, putting in extreme effort everytime, except my motivation has just taken a fatal blow. My family cannot for different reasons help me, pushing my legs or back further and I feel I will find it hard on my own. I have decided to join you all here, but not to share my results on a daily basis. Instead I am intending to post every month and say how well, or how badly I am doing. I wish goodluck to you all.

HELLO EVERYBODY!!!!

This is my first post again since I think July! Sorry to abandon you lot. Moved out of my old house where I lived with my ex and been trying to get my life on track for a while. No internet access at the mo and house sharing with some friends. Good laugh but they are all lazy and not exactly inspiring me to train very hard so I need you lot again!! I haven't stretched properly except for in my class for at least 3 months and really want to get it back on track!

I started a cage fighting class near to where i live and the training is pretty full on but sadly no stretching at all!! So whats everyone been up to??

Can only log on once a week now at my new (lovely) girlfriends parents house, so hopefully speak to some of you next week. will put my new (and probably dismal) stretch results on-line here for you to laugh at!!

Bye for now!

Rossko

p.s. I thought there'd be loads of new 'instant greamlins' by now...sort it out!!!!!!!!

Hiya guys,

I am back now aswell after a long misfortune of events. As many will know during my last posts I mentioned an injury that I have finally got rid of fully and am glad to let you know I am back in the game of stretching yet I have lost a lot of potential flexibility and just means working backwards to get it all back. I am going to start stretching fully on monday and intend to start off small and then eventually get back to my original routine as I used to be.
I have been out for a long time on this forum however I have still continued my martial art training although I have not managed to stretch as much other than at class.
However this will all change and as soon as the new year hits I intend to be back on my full routine.
So whos with me guys?

Glad the injury is fixed mate, make sure you start back into the stretching nice and steady and don't try to rush back to where you were because that could just tempt that old injury back.

Today is Sunday (in case ya didn't know!) so give me a week of stretching and I'll post my measurements on here. Been back stretching for a few weeks now so not as bad as they were but not great!!

Is there any body else in here who feels like posting their progress???

Rossko

Thats what I intend to do with my training. I will slowly work back into it. And finally I will hopefully be back to my good old ways.
So is there anyone else interested?

Here goes again!!

Just booked in to do my 2nd Dan on 21st February so not long and I have to be able to do the box splits pretty much by then.

I really haven't stretched much at all for months and months, not really since last posting here. I still stretch during my twice weekly classes which hasn't stopped at all (except for 2 weeks at christmas) but not much else apart from that.

The one thing that I find suprising is that my flexibility hasn't really gone anywhere, still nearly where I was.

I guess this must be because although I'm not stretching enough to improve my flexibility stretching twice per week must be enough to maintain it. Good news I guess for when we all get that elusive side split (suspended between two chairs maybe!!) and should have no problem maintaining it.

For the next month I will stretch as often as I can, stay healthy and will take a suplement containing Glucosamine Sulphate and Cod Liver Oil (Sanatogen's 30 X 1 per day 4.95). (Has anyone out there tried this and did you notice any diffence - I've heard promising stuff).

I hope there are people who want to join me in my new years resolution of stretching more, I'll post my stretch measurements every week on Sunday, Front Left foot forward, Front Right foot forward and side split distance from the floor just like before.

Speak to you next week!!

Rossko

glad to see you back onboard.

Nothing to be worried about I am sure not many found time during christmas to do much stretching. Keep it up.
Sounds like you are doing well and congratulations on the 2nd dan test. Good luck with it.
I am sure if you put your mind to it you will be able to recieve great results.
Just take it easy to get back into it and then get stuck in.

As for the cod liver, it is meant to help but it is only a supplement to help your stretching dont expect promising results.

Like you I want to get back into it but have to see physio first as have damaged my back and want to get it checked out before i do anything that may further hurt it.

Anyway I look forward to your results and speak soon

Tezza

Glad to hear a keen follower. I havent seen RossKo around for a while, but this weekend I will be getting back into things if anyone else is interested in joining me. I still require a check up on my back after my injury so I will be taking things slowly but want to get back into it as I am really keen.

So whos with me?
