Can glute inflexibility hinder pike flexibility?

Recommended Posts

Charlie Martin

Hi there,

I've been making semi-decent progress with my pike flexibility with the help of Jefferson curls and some calf stretching work.

However, I've realised that my glutes are as tight as tight can get. Like, to the point where my massage therapist tried stretching them and said "that's REALLY poor".

I've sort of neglected stretching them over the years and was wondering if this could have hindered my pike progress? Could it be slowing down my progress in other stretches as well (e.g. middle split/pancake)?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Yes. Stretch out the calves and arse before pike work and  you'll notice a big difference.

Also your Hamstrings. Don't neglet what's in the middle. In particular where the hammies meet the gluteus. Ouch. Be gentle. :)
