Re: Improving Flexibility
Like most things, if you want to develop flexibility you have to be somewhat systematic about it. That means finding the stretches that will enhance the kind of flexibility you're looking for, doing them consistently, doing them the right way, and doing the right thing re: injury prevention and treatment. No shortcuts or magic bullets. If you do a google search for Brad Appleton's stretching FAQ, you'll have a lot of info to get you started off, on the physiology of flexibility, different stretching methods and how to do them.
