Increasing flexibility

#1 Postby BJJVegan » Fri Jul 24, 2009 12:58 am

I know the best thing to become flexible is to consistently strech everyday. Id like to become super flexible like contortionist style flexibility. Anybody have any stretching suggestions?

Have you tried yoga?

Yoga is awesome. I guess I just need to be consistent with it.

If I am "the man", then where is "the woman"?

Found this site.

But basically it's just about commitment. As a gymnastics coach I've seen people become disillusioned because their flexibility doesn't increase as quickly as others, but after persevering they've gained the results they're after. Hope this helps :D
