is this preworkout or at home ?

@carnifexhead Not necessarily… there is a ton of research to show that passive stretching (especially pre-workout) can lead to temporary weakness and instability, and can aggravate injuries. Since I stopped "stretching" and started doing more active mobility work I've been able to remain injury free. Stretching is not always a good idea for everyone.

Simple, effective – brilliant. Great job.

have you seen a doctor about your pain? because if stretching worsens the condition that is usually bad.

Dang, I think that's what I had then. I took a week off & tried to make myself do stretches(actually very similar to these minus the flat bench).

Hey Smitty, how often should this be performed? and should be it after or before workouts or at both times?

Will definitely be incorporating this into my routine! How long would you recommend holding each stretch and how many circuits? Keep up the awesome videos!

i was just about to google this man! my hips remain quite tight even after my long mobility/stretching drill prior to working out, must have to work on them more often, great video.

I had to take a week off squatting because of some pain in my umm.."hip crease", I guess you could call it? I always feel way too tight my first two warm up sets.

Reply

I swear Smitty you always come thru especially and coincidentally on days that I am going to train that body part i.e. leg day! Preciate it bruh
