And no I don't mean stretch. Back re-arranged by chiro put it in a position where it is now too short. Apparently an Edit is in order: My right hip was 3" forward due to a vehicular accident. Chiro has literally given me my life back I'm not complaining. I'm just working through getting to being an athlete again, 1 step at a time. Current stretching things that are being done. Lay on back using rope. left fooot swings up, left hand touches right toes (now being done with a 25lb weight and a step so my wrist gets to my toes, attempting to keep leg straight) Walk with straight legs "cherry pickers" 4 counts reach towards toes, reach towards mid foot, reach towards heel, reach 4" behind heel. The program I'm on has windmills with a weight in the top arm pushing you down. Well it seriously feels like I'm getting little tears about 1/3 back from my knee. So I'd like to not tear my hamstring stretching, going to go down in weight but seriously the range of motions shit. So anything else I can do to encourage it to elongate faster? Oh foam rolling too. I'm in decent shape, getting in better shape, seriously worried about screwing up and tearing it before I get it elongated so it works properly. I'm thinkint it may be pacing. I'm going to go for a walk or a run 3 times a day, just like half a mile a pop and stretch so that it never has time to shorten up. But short of that I have no ideas. To quantify this, were talking over 15 degrees less flexiblity when stretching with a rope on my back than my left leg.
