Hey Guys. Try this site out. Has a lot of good information on stretching(when,how often and so on...) I would also recommend getting the book stretching scientifically by thomas kurz. It very good and expands on this site.
Here's the site: http://www.trickstutorials.com/index.php?page=content/flx3
Hope this helps.
Alright, I just did a few of those exercises and they seemed pretty straight forward but they will do. And yea i've heard of tom kurz.
Oh and for anyone looking for a good stretch, try doing this wall stretch that my MT trainer showed me a long time ago (kickboxers and MTers probably know this) :
Lie on your back with your butt against the wall and legs both up on the wall (it's tough getting in this position but once you get the hang of it its easy) and try and get the 90degree with your legs from your body, like this:
Now spread your legs appart as far as you can go and hold them for 30-60 seconds and then bring them to the middle like in that image and THEN bring your knees to your chest and hold them.
If you do that everyday for like 5-6 months, you'll see a huge difference and you will probably be able to do side splits (depending on your flexibility before doing this exercise).
