Stretching machines - worth it?
So I'm pretty big on multitasking. Last night, I had a neat idea - if I'm going to be fucking around on a computer, why not stretch while I do it?
so I plopped my laptop down on the floor, sat down in a straddle stretch, and answered emails and whatnot for an hour. I'm currently so seated as I write this message.
Anyways, I've been pretty inconsistent about flexibility training for the past... oh, six to eight years, and have stayed relatively static in that regard. I'd still really *like* to get stupid flexible, for both martial arts and breakdancing purposes.
Anyways, point is, I'm considering getting one of those stretching machines and making it my new "desk". One of these guys:
Anyone have experience with them? Did they help, or just a gimmick?
