    flexibility training

    hey guys, im training flexibility in my legs, im trying to get to a split(middle and side). im having a hard time developing hamstring and low back flexibility, and i wanna ask maybe if its because of anterior pelvic tilt? is it connected somehow?


    im doing the stretches from a video called "12 Minute Splits Stretch Flexibility Workout For Beginners How To Tutorial For The Splits" by pshyce truth in youtube, and the first 6 minutes are my toughest part, i feel it most in my low back, and quads, what should i do?

    It takes a long time to build flexibility. How long have you been working on this?

    Look at some of Tom Merrick's videos on youtube.

    not quite a lot, like 2 weeks, but i dont see any improvement in my flexibility at all, maybe im just exaggerating because i've seen jeff cavalierre's video about anterior pelvic tilt and because i'm really sitting a lot maybe i do have it and it makes my hamstring be all stretched and i cant stretch them anymore, im just making sure this isnt the problem and im going to improve my flexibilty.
    anyway it could be that there is improvement but i just dont notice it cause i do it 3 times a week

    If you're doing 12 minutes of stretching 3x/week that is going to take a long time. If you want to prioritize this try to do 20 minutes daily. Do regular static stretches but also incorporate active-isolated stretching and PNF work as well.

    Hey, sorry for the late response, i continued practicing flexibility for the past 7 months, daily, 20-30 minutes sometimes 40 minutes when i had a rest day, and i had one complete rest day, without resistance, cardio or flexibility. i usually train more intense on legs flexiblity(mostly pancakes at the moment), and i saw a lot of improvement, and now im also going to a physical therapist, that can help me even more. I stopped doing weight training, and started to train more gymnastics specific workouts, to strenghten skills and flexibility for that. splits are still very difficult and im not there yet, and also pancakes, but i understood that flexibility is something that takes time, patience and most important, consistency.

    It takes time, I am trying that too

    Tom Merrick and SaturnoMovement have some tutorials/videos about stretching.
    Also, you can search for judo stretching/judo mobility... especially for hams and quads.

    I used to do this

    Good luck!

    Guys, be careful about this flexibility goal of yours. Guys with prior athletic experience in gymnastics, MMA, football, soccer (a few great examples) will be more flexible and practicing spits will be less risky for them. Men, in general, are less flexible so be very careful here!! The last thing you want to do is pop a tendon (not trying to scare you- I'm serious). This advice is coming from a former competitive female gymnast. Just don't push anything. Average flexibility is good enough if you're NOT competing. It can actually be safer (ball-and-socket joints).
    ^^ It's true, my first-generation uncle was a boxer who fought Sugar Ray Robinson! He also fought in the war, sacrificing the career he deeply loved, so people could have the right to freedom.

    Let's show RESPECT for the POLICE and ALL FIRST RESPONDERS by helping to keep THEM SAFE AND SOUND, and thereby able to PROTECT US!
