Is this normal? Myofascial release. Rawsteel 9 4 yearsFiremanSi (42408): @Rawsteel Increasing ur internal or external rotation is not something u can change with a few stertches and trigger point releases. It's like strength u can't just get drastically stronger in a week these things take ALOT of time. So keep doing what ur doing, the fact u've had some success already is a credit to ur effort so far. It is most like not just that.. u seem to have well developed pecs.. tight pecs can lead to internal rotation of...
Fix Your Posture - Article lordcenturion 1 4 yearslordcenturion (1): I've had posture problems for years but like many chronic conditions you become used to it and it sort of becomes normal and you forget about it, at least it was like that for me. I've become used to feeling lower back pain every morning. What I've realised is that lower back pain is only a symptom of poor posture, in my case an anterior pelvic tilt. What I had to do is fix my posture and then my pelvis would tilt backwards thus reducing the...

how long should a man hold stretch golago 25 4 yearsadam82a (3100): Indeed. I wouldnt include stretching as a warm-up. I am a bit outside my comfort zone right now but it seems like stretching is not beneficial for performance either. Someone that knows more about sports medicine and performance can probably answr this in a better fashion than me. ...
When trying to diagnose a 'tight' spot? SOLARSUPLEX 3 4 yearsSOLARSUPLEX (8314): @qtdreams92 have not made said peanut. I do have two lax balls though... Usually i would just wait a few days but this is really something that is kicking my ass. Granted this is day 1. I thought in the morning i had just slept weird.
Very tight biceps femoris question ehukai 3 4 yearsehukai (115): I appreciate the advice. For the past few weeks I've been doing self myofascial release on my hamstring and it has helped and also reduced tension in my lower back. I've been hitting a 1:1 ratio of quad to hamstring training but should probably throw a little more volume for my hamstrings as they are underdeveloped compared to my quads. The only issue is my entire body is so dam tight my stretching/foam rolling routine is taking more and more...

shoulder mobility help golagola 7 5 yearsFiremanSi (42408): I done both this stretch and the DB/Kettlebell stretch that kelly does thats similar to this. Well it has the same outcome. When i do it i do it prior to benching. U should feel a SLIGHT pec stretch if their very tight, and u should feel ur shoulder sliding back into the glenohumeral joint slightly. I think it's a good stretch for people with bad posture also.
stretching routine leanr0x 4 5 yearsFiremanSi (42408): Yes flexibility to increase range of Motion.. And free up tightness.
Tight hamstrings run in the family??? notredame46 9 5 yearseknight (58109): 80-90 degrees is normal. Tight would be less than 80 degrees. We use static stretching on patients regularly, so I'm not sure why it would be not advised. -3X

recovery hacking mrgains 5 5 yearsEat2Trainn247 (2557): THIs. And as an addition, HMB has been shown to speed up recovery so you can obtain a more frequent training stimulus. however, this is expensive, the Free-acid form is not yet available on the market (the faster digesting/better version compared to calcium-HMB). would only recommend this for a well thought out and planned overreaching cycle or if in a calorie deficit and still training hard. All in all, I second/third the above. A...

Stretching neck and traps? Elminister 6 5 yearsElminister (3412): @ajones46 Followed your instructions. Broke my elbow and dislocated my shoulder. Nah, seriously, I tried it out. It's a good stretch. I'll be doing as much of these different type of exercises as I can find. I've been sitting too much at the computer and I think it's affecting the time it takes for my back and shoulders to recover from workouts. So I intend to incorporate different stretches and mobility work to relieve the tension from...

Mobility cassious 4 6 yearsDanimal_88 (9760): @cassious Just make sure you really analyze what you need to perform in the gym. It is very easy to take it overboard with mobility work and end up doing a lot of unneccesary work. Things I look to work on for my main lifts: Bench: Thoraic Extension, Shoulder IR/ER, Pectoral tightness Squat: Thoraic Extension, Hip ER, Hamsrtring tightness, and ankle dorsiflextion Deadlift: Thoraic Extension, Elbow Extension, Hamstring Tightness
Some lower body questions Hamer93 4 6 yearsHamer93 (9553): Cheers man will try that bed stretch. I do foam rolling but I just needed a way to stretch the muscle and I did wonder if the shin pains was splints. It's almost like lower leg hypersensitivity??

Stretching to relieve pain Jsn3004 1 6 yearsJsn3004 (3265): Before I started working out seriously I had some lower back problems from sports and having pretty tight hamstrings. It seems that it is coming back to haunt me now whenever I workout legs and squat. My knees always seem to be going over my toes and it seems I am losing flexibility. Do any of you guys stretch for long periods of time?
Help, tight hipflexor/hammies Hewy007 12 6 yearsDanimal_88 (9760): Get into a full squat position without shoes everyday for 10mins. if you need help, grab onto a chair or something.

But its so worth it.

*Hip Release with Tennis/Lacrosse Ball. FiremanSi 14 6 yearsSeahawkMuscle (277): @FiremanSi After using a pretty basic foam roller I bought the blue Rumble Roller last year (Their black roller is supposed to be the most dense kind but it was said the blue was plenty for most.) At first I could barely even use it but now it's great. I may get the black roller sometime but my current one works wonders! If I don't use it for 5-6 days I better get ready for an interesting evening lol.

Your thoughts on stretching leokozian 8 6 yearsDukenhiemer (23938): I stretch my hams and glutes a lot as my low back is not the greatest. I do mobility work for shoulders to start and stretch at the end of my workout.
Stronglift 5x5 with short hammies databas1c 1 6 yearsdatabas1c (2188): Hi all, I'm a former fatty who ignored common sense and more embarrassingly science, and proceeded to massively cut with out an appropriate strength routine to minimize muscle loss. On the positive side, Im down to roughly 193lbs from over 270 and currently tracking around 12% bf. On the negative side, I've got all this flabby skin and I'm pretty weak compared to fat me. I've started to do the Stronglift 5x5 program and eating a bit above...
They see me rollin' sriram 1 6 yearssriram (2050): Hey, Anyone else in love with foam rolling? Couldn't find a thread about this topic, so I decided to start one. To those that have tried foam rolling, what's the difference between the basic foam rollers and the more expensive kind in terms of actual physical impact? And to those who haven't tried foam rolling, here are some videos that might help; ...
Streching Markovich 3 7 yearsMassthetics (364): i just do it after training. they say proper stretching should last at least 25 secs, until the stretchy feeling sort of subsides.
not feeling the stretch?? Dave21 14 7 yearsMillennium1 (586): It's all in the hips going back. The further back you push your hips/butt the more you feel it.

should i stretch? warrior 14 7 yearsJelet (2190): seems to help with my doms. I would be all stiff and sore the day after leg day. and then i would do the stretches at night before i go to bed to get that soreness down and then the next time i feel good and nice. maybe its just me but i think i helps. i also rub my body parts that are sore in the shower with the soap and this helps with soreness as well. People even do it on animals. After working out animals they will rub them to reduce...

yoga bosssantana 25 7 yearsseansm10 (906): swayz - do you do yoga regularly? how do you work it into any form of schedule? or do you just go whenever you want
warming up BaiTu 12 7 yearsDragonian (4951): Always warmed up on the specific area im going to train for example i wouldnt do cardio as a warm up if im going to do a shoulder workout, i usually pick up 2kg dumbells or so and do this twice: 10 reps lateral raises 10 reps shoulder press 10 reps arm circles without a break wait a minute and repeat. After that if i was starting on military press i would do 20 reps with the bar and then 20 reps with 10kg a side then begin.
Stretching Dragonian 14 7 yearshaole (2109): good advice here. You shouldnt static stretch before playing sports or lifting, kinetic stretches are better if you feel like you need to losen up a bit. Static stretching before exercises will hinder your performance levels by something like 5-15%. If you do want to increase flexibility you can do static stretching after workouts or at other times of the day. Pretty F'd up when I think back about all my old coaches that would make us stretch...
