    TBM, how would one go about using the foam roll on these muscles? Like with the calves, assuming you're doing the exercise on yourself, are you, like, sitting in a chair with your foot resting on an elevated surface?

    -EDIT-

    After some searching, I found this on the site you posted.

    http://www.performbetter.com/catalog...FoamRoller.pdf

    Is this adequate to know how to do the exercises?

    Please post muscle imbalance corrections, especially lower body, when i squat down i have trouble keeping my shins straight and if i do i have to lean foreward
    I'll go into detail later tonight when I get more time. But for the time being, to answer your question, the most likely muscle that's tight for you is your calves. When you say you have to lean forward, do you mean that your heels come off the ground? Heels off the ground and feet turning outward are the two most common signs of tight calves.

    TBM, I pulled the muscle in the back of my leg sometime mid last year. Sorry I can't give the name, but it's between my knee and hip, on the back side. It's been really tight ever since, and whenever I stretch it again, it seems to be exceptionally tight. There is some pain, but somehow not quite the same as the pain of a normal stretch.

    Is this a candidate for this SMFR treatment? Reading your post, it sounded like maybe this is what I need.

    SMFR is good for any muscle, any time. Some need it more than others. Can't hurt to try it. By the way, that's your hamstring complex, it consists of the Biceps Femoris, the Semimembranosus, and the Semitendinosus

    I want to apologize to everyone for being a bit slow on this topic. I'm really busy at work, usually up at 6am, and not home til 11pm or midnight. I get enough time to provide basic answers, but usually I'm too tired to go into great detail. So, the next major topic post realistically won't be up until the weekend. But in the meantime, keep asking questions, I'll do my best to provide short answers.

    Then how can you increase calf flexibility besides the basic calf stretches...? Those don't seem to be working. Also, I am ALMOST able to do a split and a straddle, I just need that extra "push." I know someone was asking about splits before and I was curious on the topic too.

    Yes please, especially the posture. I know that proper posture is important but how can you know/tell what that posture is supposed to be?

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to TaeBo_Master again.
    Thanks TBM, will give it a shot.

    TBM-
    just a few questions about the PNF stretching.

    They are great when done prior to competion, e.g. make you flexible and feel light.
    Now on actual competition day, I am far too busy to go through a proper PNF program.
    For which I use my personal trainer anyway, since he can supervise what I am doing.

    So- PNF stretches done the day before a comp - can they still have a positive effect on your flexibility on your comp day? Or would you say that the time in between streching and competing should be pretty short?
