As some of you may know, Im attempting to add this to my arsenalhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUlUv0WhDcg
Ive got a few stretches for my legs, but what I want to know is;
How long should I hold each stretch for?
How many sets of stretches should I do per session?
Is there an optimum time of day to stretch?
It could be argued that this didnt warrant a new thread, but I hope the info that I need will be off use to others, as it will applicable to all stretching, not just stretching legs.
I mainly need to loosen my calf muscles, so I can perform that whipping kick, as it is I can perform most Muay Thai style kicks, and the Cro Cop style LHK, but this kick is a bit more complex and I feel I should get my hamstrings in perfect shape before trying this!
