Scott Sonnen's Intu-Flow
Scott Sonnen has been teaching this program called Intu-Flow that is a sort of ROM exercise program that he says is good for rehab of joints as well as "prehab" to prevent injury and ensure proper joint mobility through greater ROM. This looks good to me and I am thinking of starting to learn it.
I post this here in hopes of hearing more... critical evaluations of said program than the propaghanda on his website.
Agreed. Thanks and please keep us posted what your impressions of the program are.

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

Reason: Fixed broken video links.
I've been implementing a stretching program over the last few weeks for rehab/prehab, so I'll definitely give these a look-see.

I think being flexible helps to do that.
I gave some of the videos a watch... it looks like it'd be a decent pre-activity warm-up session, but I don't think it's what I'm looking for in terms of flexibility/rehab work.

how long do you spend doing the sequence?
how long do you spend in each movement?
how brainwashed are the CST crowds?
The whole sequence if you follow the video takes about 30 minutes, but once you know the movements you can get it down to 15 or 20 to do the whole program. The crux of it, however, is that you don't need to do the sequence all the way through. He recommends just doing a couple movements at the top of each hour, throughout the day. I find it more convenient just to do it once all the way through. If you decide only to do the "big joints" like the neck, shoulders, thorax, pelvis, hips, and spine with none of the other material, you could probably get the time down to 5-10 minutes.
Each individual movement focuses on one joint complex such as neck, shoulders, hips, wrist, etc. At the beginning level they are joint circles, which then become more complicated movements like figure 8's, and only take 5-10 seconds per joint. In some cases it takes longer because you work in more than one direction.
The CST crowd to me actually seems pretty well educated, but also seems to forget sometimes that there is no be-all end-all in fitness. Most of them do know quite a bit about physiology and movement, but can be somewhat closed-minded about other ways to train. Other than that, it's kind of hard to describe unless you just read their forum.
