Not at all Heretic. You only need to do a leg workout a maximum of twice a week, indeed I think that if you did a 5 x 5 squat once a week you'll make significant strength gains. That will leave you plenty of time to stretch. If you wanted to work the legs mroe than this, then you could deadlift on another day, which would put less emphasis on your legs, more on your lower back, and would therefore still allow you to stretch the day afterwards.

So then, as long as I'm working on my legs much.. I'll pretty much never achieve the side splits.

If static passive stretching requires consistency in order for me to make progress, then I won't be able to. Soreness won't allow me to stretch much. And when I'm not sore anymore, I've probably lost the small progress I've made.






DOMS is mainly soreness of connective tissue and not muscle, so the sore feeling is not the great thing that it's portrayed to be.

If you want to be flexible, use weights, squats, lunges (front, side and back) will make you flexible.

And I still maintain that soreness shouldn't be going on for 2 days - it's just not practical or healthy.
