Stretching

Does anybody have any links to articles on stretching?

I work at GoodLife, so there are many trainers here who have given me plenty of advice, but I'm not finding any that are working for me. I have been going to a chiropractor which is helping tons but I don't want to pay money every single time I need a good stretch!

I work with a trainer, so I'm doing weights and such at least 3 times a week with him, then maybe a day on my own, and regular cardio.


If anyone can find anything for me that's reliable, that would help!

PS. The area's I'm most affected are all on my left side; left knee, left hip flexor, left trap, left side of neck (here and there)

Thank you!

Careful

My instinct would be to get someone to look at the mechanics of your foot, if you have issues stretching may add to them , I would not be using a Chiro to facilitate this , just a thought

Honestly, with all of that taking place on your left side you may want to see a professional. You could have some alignment issues of your spin causing lots of tension in those muscles.

Agree with Eric - that whole left side thing tells an interesting story.

how ya doing?

Personally, i tend to go towards checking movement quality first more than stretching.

If you'd like the recommendation for a good movement coach to look at your movement and help get you feeling better, please PM me with where you are and i'll be happy to point you to some peeps.

best
