Stretching Routine

Postby tezza » May 24, 2006 07:40

Before I start the following routine could people please evaluate it and tell me what issues need to be addressed.
I would appreciate any criticism on it as I don’t know people may feel that this is too much.
Friday varies as Friday I would normally do a variety of stretches not relevant for side split it is just for other purposes.

MONDAY: AM - Dynamic stretches (leg swings 3x10 to front, side and rear)
PM – Dynamic stretches (leg swings 3x10 to front, side and rear) as part of warm up
Isometric stretches (contracting and relaxing the stretching muscle until maximum stretch and then holding for 30 secs.) I use 3 sets each of two stretches for hams, quads and adductors
I also have training so I do 15-20 minutes of stretching with everyone else then as well

TUESDAY: AM - Dynamic stretches (leg swings 3x10 to front, side and rear)
PM – Dynamic stretches (leg swings 3x10 to front, side and rear)
Relaxed Stretching (Normal stretch comprising basically of just sliding into the stretch position and holding for 30 secs) I do 3 sets each of two different stretches for Hams, adductors and Quads.

WEDNESDAY: AM - Dynamic Stretches
PM - Dynamic stretches (leg swings 3x10 to front, side and rear) as part of warm up
Relaxed stretches (the same as for Tuesday) I also do my class again today and some technique training.

THURSDAY: Same as Monday

FRIDAY: OFF General warm-up i.e. skipping, dynamic stretches
Specific warm-up roundhouse kicks
Main part; kicking (a variety of different kicks)
Cool down: relaxed stretches

SATURDAY: AM - Dynamic Stretches
PM - Isometric Stretches (same as for Monday)

SUNDAY: OFF (day of rest)

Please feel free to criticise. Thanks

You need some conditioning in there if you are a martial artist,and more cardio. I would also recommend more for your entire body as opposed to only concentrating on your hams,quads,and adductors.
Most people want to achieve the splits but becoming a good all round martial artist requires more than that.

I understand what you are saying but this is only part of my workout I also do a lot of other work.
I was querying on whether or not the routine for my lower part of my body was okay before I started to do it.

If you do a lot of other work as well as what you listed i'd say it might be too much.

The best thing to do would be to list everything you do.That way it's easier to see what can be dropped/needs to be included.
