    Not sure if it's been addressed in the past, but starting stretching in the faq hasn't had all of the links working for a while and I haven't been able to find a YouTube video of the program. Is there an info graphic or another similar program out there?

    I made a similar post. Some mod said he was in the process of making a follow along video for it.

    Holding a squat position for 1 minute can be pretty darned tiring even if you're in shape, but ESPECIALLY so if you're not in shape and are inflexible.

    I say just keep at it, and maybe also make sure that you're properly nourished (eating enough food), not low on electrolytes, stuff like that.

    Hey dude. I don't know what your routine looks Like, but I can tell you that most of this fatigue is likely due to your nervous system being overloaded. Its your body's way of saying, holy shit wtf are you doing while not necessarily destroying muscle fibers the way weightlifting does. Not a bad thing, just something to adapt to

    Take a photo of yourself doing middle Splits. Then stretch at least 15min a week then take weekly photos of your middle split to see the improvement. My yoga professor advice

    Maybe while you don't lock up your knees you are contracting your hamstrings, and that's a bad situation when you are stretching. The hamstrings contract to bend the leg and the quads contract to extend it, that's why they recommend to use the quads while stretching the hamstrings.

    I’ve learned through lots of years of teaching dance, that sometimes you have to modify a stretch to work with your body. If having your legs perfectly straight is causing pain, relax them a bit, move around and try different variations until you find the stretch you’re looking for. Eventually, your body will have enough flexibility to do a full forward pike. I have to do this with a side lunge stretch. I don’t feel much when I’m doing it the “right” way, but if I make some modifications, I get a real nice stretch! Good luck!

    Just stretch after your workout. Best time to work on flexibility as you will be super warmed up and it helps recovery from the workout.
