Yesterday my Muay thai teacher pulled me from my usual jump rope warm up and "helped" me with some stretches which included.... -Putting my leg on the mat (making sure my knee is bent, as well as the supporting legs knee) and holding it there for everal seconds. -sitting down against the turnbuckle and spreading my legs as wide as I can. This was followed by my Muay Thai teacher doing the same, only he would spread his legs in between mine in order to make me stretch them out farther. these two exercises hurt like hell (I kept imagining that scene in "kickboxer" where Van dam was forced to do the stretch) but I have to admit, my Thai roundhouses came out much better afterwards. i kicked higher and smoother than before. Anyways, you guys got some suggestions on what kind of stretching techniques I should do at home? My teacher told me to stop being a lazy America and sit on the floor . He said I should do stretches while watching TV etc. Do you guys have any other ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks !
