Thread starter Tobias Wissmueller Start date Dec 20, Tobias Wissmueller Level 6 Valued Member. Dear Girevichkas and Gireviks, am confused.
Plus, it is super effective. Something that lasts maybe 30 minutes that can be done before going to bed for example? I enjoy my morning sessions with the Kettlebell and would like to have something for the evenings before going to bed. It would also help me unwind from the day. What is the StrongFirst-approach to this? I see people on the forum here using different approaches, like Steve Freides writes a lot about "Flexible Steel", whereas Strong Rick is doing "Original Strength" stuff.
When there is a part of my body that needs more attention, right now its my lower back that is tensed for example, I use the foam roller or trigger ball to help it. This is where "Supple Leopard" helped me so much already.
So am curious how you guys approach this topic. Do you have a certain routine to improve your overall flexibility and mobility on a regular basis, something that you return to from time to time or even do on a regular basis? Thanks for any points into the right direction. Kind Regards, Tobi.
Hello, Tobias Wissmueller All the ones you listed above are proven effective. They are all a solid approach. It works functional flexibility get down, up, twist I enjoy the fact that is really free : you learn some basic moves, and then, you can either follow some progression he offers, or create yours. It is based on transition between yoga stances. I do it both after a training session. Sometimes I also do it before going to bed, to vary a little from breathing techniques.
It is my 2 cents about stretching because for that I am very instinctive. I still progress using that so Kind regards, Pet'. Tobias Wissmueller said:. If I was as disciplined as Pavel M, I would do what he outlines above But I'm not. What I really do is more ad hoc, as needed, and whatever feels right. Some OS resets, some stretching, a yoga class once or twice a week, a lot of movement prep before kettlebell training based on what I need and feel that day.
Finding a routine you can do is a good idea. My first daily routine that helped me was doing 12 sun salutations every day for many months. As you get further down the road, it becomes more important to evaluate areas that are limiting you and put some additional focus there.
Relax and exhale. That's the magic medicine. It also helps to have movement baselines. I learned this from Karen Smith. A great example is the "Thoracic Three" that she teaches, the first one you are lying on your side with your hands stacked, and you glide the top hand forward and back. If you know your "normal" amount of movement, you can determine if you are a bit restricted that day and need more mobility work such as SMR or Brettzels before pressing or doing something else overhead or where mobility is required.
It also helps you see if you are making progress over time. I've always had good hip mobility and flexibility in the lower body, but being a desk worker for so many years I've had to work a lot on the T-spine.
And I still have a lot of work to do on the shoulders Some good stuff in this thread: Super Joints - minimum effective dose Anyway, just some thoughts Abdul-Rasheed Level 6 Valued Member. Tobias Wissmueller you may be interested in this thread. Super Joints - minimum effective dose Edit: Oops, sorry about the duplicate link, already mentioned in the above post.
Anna C Elite Certified Instructor. Tobias Wissmueller , we are interested in Strength here - do whatever you need of all the rest in order to remain healthy and moving well. Pick and choose. I have a couple of things I do every morning because they work for me, take me less than 60 seconds to do, and they make my machinery ready for strength training and the rest of my day.
I cannot tell you what you might need. I do some things only once or twice a week because, while I value them, I don't seem to need to do them every day in order to reap their benefits. Tobias Wissmueller For me I also do Tai-Chi practice almost daily. But to Steves point Jan Level 4 Valued Member.
The Morning Recharge complex is great for joint mobility, the tactical frog exercises are a nice hip opening exercise. Hello, As Pavel Macek said, you have to vary your stretching. Stretching aims for well-being. Strong Rick Level 8 Valued Member. Pavel Macek said:. Wow, so many great answers. Thanks to all of you!
Don't know where to begin Let's start from the top then. Anna C said:. Steve Freides said:. For me Jan said:. Hello, Tobias Wissmueller Tobias Wissmueller said:. I will get my foam roller or whatever and work on it. However they require more "control" than the foam roaller.
I think the best is to do first the foam roaller as a "general" massage, and then the ball to fix some points. Look what I have found " Flexible Steel Minimum ". The sun salutations is supposed to be done in the morning. Is there a equivalent for the evening? Hello, tob In that case, only one solution: a true massage All kidding aside, it can be a trap: too much pressure make the point painful shortly after.

Daily Stretching / Mobility Program
Corners can obviously only ever go two ways — left or right — and most motorbike accidents are single vehicle accidents. This means the riders themselves are responsible for most of the crashes. Your current limit of flexibility is a self-imposed point. When unconscious, we are all capable of full splits, yet when awake our bodies sense impending danger to the muscles lengthening beyond this preconceived point and begin to tense up to prevent injury. That stiffness you feel when you stretch is all in your head and totally created by you. At extreme ranges the opposite will happen and the muscles will go completely slack.
