Starting Saturday I will be taking the week off and getting a little R&R - will blog after next week. Here is a couple pics and description of the active straight leg raise drill:

Active Straight Leg Raise drill - using the strap bring the leg up to the beginning of the stretch and hold for a few seconds while keeping the down leg straight and flat. Then perform 10 leg raises keeping the down leg straight raise it even with the Up leg. If the Up leg loosens a bit then increase the stretch but the down leg needs to return to the ground straight and flat (calf touching before heel without any turn out) every rep. Go easy and take your time and this will really change your hip mobility.

Great post Brett. I love doing a superset of tall or half kneeling presses along with SL deadlifts.

Need to get back to the arm bars. See you in SD in 3 weeks!

One legged deadlift keeping both legs straight through entire progression.

Do you think this is equivalent?

No respect to Mark Verstegen, but the BRETZEL is hands down the "worlds Greatest Stretch!"

Look forward to working with you in SD Mark

Taikei - I don't think it is but if you are finding different let me know

Chris - let's just say there are two worlds greatest stretches ;-)

Diane is great - drop me a line but allow lots of time to schedule (my fall schedule is packed)
