Riddle me this… Is it possible, that no matter how much I stretch, I will never have anything more than average (at best) flexibility? One would think, with the Muay Thai, BJJ, and years of skiing, that I would have some sort of bendy and stretchyness to me. But alas, I am as flexible as a piece of solid steel. I can’t kick anyone in the head that’s any taller than me. I can’t even attempt anything that resembles a rubber guard. When I launch over a gap there’s no way I can do a “Truck Driver” (google it).
Could it be that I’m doing the wrong stretches? Believe me, I’ve asked myself that time and time again. I have googled stretching routines until the cows came home. But it just seems that nothing works.
People have told me that if I want to be really flexible, I have stretch very deeply and hold those positions to the point of pain. Tried it… Nada… I am going to try some yoga see if that gets me get bendy. I just downloaded an app on my iPhone/iPad, so hopefully it will be worth it. I wonder if it will just be one more thing I check off the list as “failed”?
