Are you going to be joining us in our quest to be extra-flexible MikeMartial??





I just might be. I had a stretching journal in this forum a while back, which I haven't updated in a long time. I bought Kurz's book a few years back, and applied the dynamic principles with great results. I can easily kick head height now---But really, in that two years, my static flexbility has remained almost totally unchanged. (amazingly!) It never bothered me, but having greater static flexibility is just a new goal.

I'd like to achieve a full split, so I'll have to add more static and isometric stretching to my workout.

Firstly congratulations on your progress RossKo. Seems like its not just me that has had a good stretching workout this week.
MikeMartial welcome aboard. I mentioned your thread at the start of this one just so people could refer to that.
Glad to see its all working for everyone.

Thanks Tezza,

One of my students commented on my side split yesterday in class, he said he didn't realize I could nearly do the splits, cool.

MikeMartial - I PM'd you at the start of this post to see what you were up to. Wondered where you'd gone!! I used to tune in to your Thomas Kurtz stretching post all the time and then it just stopped!! Have you still been stretching?


Rossko

P.S. Wheres everyone elses measurements?

Congrats on the progress once again.

Yea I wondered how your stretching has been going Mike because I was a keen follower of your old thread. So I would be interested in finding out how it is going.

Also like RossKo I am wondering has everyone left us because there are no measurements

New Injured Measurements:

Side: 36cm
Right front: 30cm
Left front: 30cm

So, in essence it looks like I haven't changed at all. This is good! Because of my aches and pains this is my goal. Maintain but not need to improve (until i'm no longer pained)

BTW Rossco, I've been doing that kind of bent knee standing split type stretch for a while. Actually I really like it 'cuz I can do it here at work and look only stlightly funny as opposed to sitting on the ground and doing all the other ones. Thanks for the tip.

Glad to see you are still trying to maintain you flexibility even though you are injured, seeing as many people I know would just give up until the injury has gone away, which would mean they would miss out on so much.
Have you seen the doctor yet?

lol, no. I haven't gone to the doc yet. I'm just dumb that way I guess. I keep on figuring that with a little rest things should be getting better. They don't though. Maybe this is just something I have to force myself to do... not because I want to, but because it's the right thing to do...

I understand where you are coming from Onb, although what if it was worst than you think and you are only making it worst by not getting treatment.
So why not spare 30 minutes of your day jusst to get it checked out.
Im not forcing you to, although I feel that a professioanls opinion would be highly advisible.

Bleh I'm not getting real improvements on my side split, which holds my front split back as well (rear leg sideways)
Front: 10/10
Side: 18
When I cheated a little and bent forward in the front split (more hamstrings, less inner thighs) I got 7 cm
If my adductors were only as flexible as my hamstrings I could to that front split.
