Lots of stretching today - hips and hamstrings etc... felt much better after opening up.
Movement prep - as I said lots of stretching
24 kg Arm bar + Get-up x 5 singles right and left (overhead squat to finish the get-up)
24 kg Alternating Swings x 20 reps x 5 sets (might have been 6)
Ab Wheel x 5 reps x 2 sets
Little stretch to finish
Opening the hips and hamstrings were a key for today. I missed a couple of days of training due to a small stomach bug thing and ended up a bit stiff so the stretching was key.
Stretching has or had become a debatable subject over the past few years but it still holds a great place in a program.
I plan to join 10 week class in a bikram yoga studio before starting into training (well, it'll probably be in conjunction with training). I'm very interested in the debatable subject of stretching, and am seeing fitness experts who may have once renounced it, softening their stance on it recently. Animals such as cats do their fair share of stretching.
