    If you've got time could you do 'Why is dynamic stretching different to bouncing?'
    Thanks.

    A basic stretching routine would be impossible to post. The reason being that everyone's flexibility needs are different. It depends on your personal muscle imbalances, your goals, and your experience level. What I could do is post a piece on common muscle imbalances and how to remedy them, or if you want to give me more time and go into more detail... I could post a fairly extensive flexibility assessment and related stretches.

    The difference between dynamic stretching and bouncing:

    In a dynamic stretch you're moving the joint through it's entire range of motion, from full extension to full flexion, and trying to add a little bit of range at the end of each.

    In a ballistic or bouncing stretch, you start the stretch in the fully stretched position, and then bounce it a little bit deeper, then returning to your starting point. The stretch never leaves a stretched position, and doesn't incorporate a full range of motion.

    If I were not vanquished from your presence for all eternity, I would ask for an example (picture if possible) of a dynamic stretch, because I still have trouble figuring it out.

    Can you post your own stretching routine at least as an example? And also, if doing splits is not a part of your goals, then what other stretching goals do you have? Like putting both legs behind your head or something? :D

    Ok, let me give you a verbal example (no pictures easily available, and I'm heading to bed). The best one I can think of is any kind of kick. Let's use a stretch kick (basically, leg stays straight, swing it out in front of you as high as possible). Now, let's say your flexibility allows you to kick up to hip level. You start out standing, kick up to hip level. Bring the foot back without putting it on the ground, swinging it behind you just a little bit. Then you kick up and bring it an inch above hip level. Then back again. Then two inches above hip level. Etc.

    Currently, my stretching routine only deals with my muscle imbalances. Mostly calves, a little bit of adductors, and that's about it.

    You seem surprised that doing the splits is not one of my goals. Why the hell would it be? There's little functional value in being able to do the splits, unless you want to show off or something. My training is functional in nature, flexibility included. This means I simply want to be flexible enough to kick as high as I feel necessary, and otherwise move my joints in the range of motion that's applicable to the way I fight.

    Thank you very much.

    Can it be done safely with different kinds of kicks, like roundhouses?

    As long as it's very gradual, yes. The purpose is primarily to teach the nervous system that a new range of motion beyond what it's used to is safe. So don't push it. There will come a point where you can't get any higher. When you reach this point, exercise something, do some static or PNF stretching, try again. If you still can't get any higher, then you're done for the day and try again later.
