I was thinking of ordering the stretching scientifically book, but before that I reread some of the articles on the reading room on stretching, and I guess I may have missed the "Test" picture where you do a "half-split" using a chair, turns out I can barely do it, and even then I'm leaning all over the place, but I feel alot of pain.
Now what? Yeah yeah I know about the dynamic stretching and all but I would still like to be able to do them. Are you supposed to feel any kind of pain? I'm not sure what the exact name of where I feel pain is but it's on the inside of my thighs(close to groin), and its not a muscle pain. I have trouble doing the dynamic stretches as well, I've seen videos(sorry Kurz, but those stick figures just don't cut it) of how to do them from tricks tutorials and other sites, and its been about 3 weeks with no progress on the side lifts whatsoever. This has really frustrated me lately, and now I feel I can probably never throw high roundhouse kicks with proper form. Sorry for the flood of questions and the long post, but I'm yanking my hair here..
