middle split course and other days

Recommended Posts

Leonardo Campodonico

Hi all ! , i have a question about middle split course ( i want to buy it ) . I get that i have to do a stretching routine once a week ... i think it ll last 30 min if not more... i m very rigid. can i do it ? following the exercises ? i can barely touch the floor in pike ... 

the other question is : can i do more stretching during the week ? i want practise the pnf technique on my rigid muscles ( adductors and glutes ) and a mix of passive/active stretching for the rest of the body.. 

let me know , i had the groin . :) (i can post my rigidity if you want)

For beginner my suggestion is the course, the PNF it is both advanced and with a major risk of injury. 

On the other days you can evaluate to pick the 1 or 2 exercises where you feel you are more tight and work on them, but not repeat the course more then 1 time.

If you want you can use the PNF but you need to isolate as much as you can every single muscles, general poses tend to be too hard to be managed if you are very tight.
