    Stretching

    I know a lot of bodybuilder's like to stretching a little before workingman and even more after working out I was wondering as PL do any of you stretch? If so what types of stretching do you do?

    I like to stretch, foam roll, and monster stick twice a day for about 10-15 minutes each time. Its done wonders for my flexibility.

    Sometimes I'll do a bit of a dynamic warmup before lifting but normally I don't do anything.

    Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

    I do a lot of stretching and foam rolling. Stretching for my lower body and shoulders, and foam rolling all over. I do this every day. Like Lones, it has greatly improved my flexibility. I also do a lot of band dislocates every day with a mini band. My shoulders feel so much better since I started doing them.

    You roll it on your hams, quads, hips, calves, whatever, while holding on to both ends of the stick
