  1. Hello everyone I've suffered a hamstring injury about 1 year ago doing a front split. After that, it was about 9 months of pain and restricted movement.. About three/four months ago, the injury started to get better as I started to strengthen the muscle group (mostly with hamstring curls and hip thrusts). It got better to a point where I would not feel acute pain sitting for long periods (what used to happen on the first 9 months) or doing any kind of leg extension.. But even though it got better, in some movements i still feel like there is a lock on my hamstring, a feeling of tightness that stops me from doing some exercises.. On the pictures, as you can see, I perform two different hamstring stretches: The single leg pike and the head to toe. On the single leg pike, I can barely touch the floor, as in the head to toe, I can progress much better (with some pain still).. It's worth to mention that I don't feel pain anymore doing the splits, but I do feel a little bit of a lock stopping me from touching the floor on it. Appreciate any help.
  2. Greetings all, I’ve been observing the forums for years to be honest and I’ve come across a concept that I’d love some input on specifically from the Stretch Therapy forum perspective. Some of my interests at present are Gymnastics, parkour, grappling, qui gong, Pranayama, Parkour, olympic lifting, ballet, trying to grow facial hair and rock climbing. I have been researching different training methods used by Olympic Coach Charles Polliquin and stumbled across the fascinated idea that brain chemistry dominance will dictate an individual’s optimum training frequency. Secondly an individual’s brain chemistry could be linked to traditional Chinese medicines 5 elements. Charles explains this in https://www.t-nation.com/training/five-elements For those not familiar with Polliquin he has decades of training Olympic athletes and can boast 18 world record holders. I’ve personally benefitted from incorporating his views on cluster training and periodization. According to the test I register as Acetylcholline dominant which poses some interesting questions for my own practice as it states that I would benefit from reducing my training output. This is going to first be challenging as I often train under coaches and would have difficulty asking for 40% less output during my ballet class. Secondly as this contrasts my entire approach to learning skills, I’ll often immerse myself in a skill daily until I feel I have mastery over it . As an example I practice handbalancing daily as I’m terrible at it. What I’d be very interested in from the Stretch Therapy community is: -what brain chemistry dominance have individuals found? -how have people adapted there practice/ research? Thanks in advance for any input Jarad For anyone interested in doing the test for themselves you can find it here http://advancedpsychcare.tripod.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/braverman.test.pdf Although I recommend that you take the time to do it properly (good nights sleep, not hungry) as you’ll only be able to do the test once. I’d imagine if you try a second time you’ll bias the answers.
