SwissDanny Posted November 11, 2014 Report Share Posted November 11, 2014 Going to run a Stretch training log here. My usual logging software (beyond the whiteboard) is not going to work for ST, way too Crossfit specific. Plus I'm going to teach some ST too, so will record both my own workouts and how workouts planned for others have gone. Spent an hour "rehearsing" a pancake focussed limbering and stretch class that Im going to use as an introduction to ST for a yogi friend. Started with cossack squats including the new version with raised heel of bent leg, as well as kneeling hip flexor and glute limbers. Really focussed on trying to feel and take note of the tight lines. Based on this did limber versions of floor piriformis, QL, tailor pose (this is currently a breaking-through area for me), hamstring stretch. Retest regular cossack squats with satisfactory results. Standing pancake progressions, working on bent to straight legs elephant walk style then working on the forward bend, using progressively lower yoga blocks as a reference for my forehead. Felt calves so did some straight leg calf limbering. Retested the standing pancake. Happy with that as a structure for my buddy's intro... but he's more advanced so will trial a partner version of seated pancake progressions. PS Waiting for my wife to finish her workout, trialled the "barbell of correction" for calves and hamstrings. They make a great heavy 2 inch rod... prop up the other end with some fractionals.
