Hey guys I havn't made a thread in a very long time but I cannot seem to find a concrete answer anywhere on this site or online and I am incredibly frustrated by my lack of progress with my squat depth. I have been trying my best to keep up with Kelly Starrett and his MobilityWOD along with countless other Fitness Gurus on youtube about stretches for squats but they seem to be just tips instead of actual routines.
My question is this: How should I be stretching to gain a deeper squat depth? What stretches should I be doing? I guess what I am looking for is a stretching routine. I understand that the most effective time is right after a workout session but I have no idea which one of the million stretches I should utilize.
Also, can someone explain how to do PNF stretching alone? I find some conflicting information online. Stretch for 5 seconds then relax for 5-10 then immediately take advantage of that added ROM for 15 seconds. Then what? I understand these are the best for passive/active mobility but I have no idea how to do them properly.
How do you guys warm up for squats? I can't even hit parallel without warming up yet people I know can just hit ATG on the spot. I'm trying my best to improve. I can't even hit parallel on a bodyweight squat without warming up.
Many thanks to anyone who chimes in.
EDIT: Additional info: I am tight everywhere, lol. feelsbad.jpeg
