    Even though this forum already has plenty of great stickies, would it be too much to ask Aeso or Shuma to give El Macho's and others stretching routines a permanent home? Especially with rubber guard being all the rage today.

    Meh, thanks for the suggestion, but I think that would be a bit reduntant. There is a section named Physical Training, Diet, and Health already. Somehow the topic of this thread sticks between it and DHS. :eusa_thin
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    the only flexibility i consider necessary is in the neck and back - everything else makes bjj easier, but a stiff spinal column is going to get injured, period.

    Although I cannot suggest any specific exercises to try I can give some info based on my experience. I've been trying to learn Eddie Bravo's rubber guard techniques(requires quite a bit of flexability in the hips, back, legs; hell, everywhere) so I've started doing stretches before class, during, and after. During class while watching a technique I may get a quick one in. The fact is, whatever you do, you have to keep doing it. I also find that I'm more flexable after class since I'm warmed up and so I try to get a good stretch going once I get home to take advantage of that. My flexability sucked when I first started grappling. Now, it's a lot better and it will continue to improve.

    Well, it's settled: El Macho is my new personal trainer :notworthy

    I'll try those exercises Macho, as I failed the test of grabbing the opposite foot, thumb down.

    I'll also check out whatever Kurz put in his book for those muscle groups.
    I'm trying to pin down what types of flexibility for those groups I need, in Kurz' terms.

    For example, I think that for the hamstrings I would need dynamic active (for getting triangles and armbars from underneath), dynamic passive (for when the guard is pushed foward), and static passive (for when the guard is pushed foward and held). I could be wrong, though :icon_scra
