Improve your legs apart stretch - An easy routine that takes 10 mins

Stretching is one of those things that martial artists always want to improve. 

We mistakenly assume that our warm up in class is stretching, well it kind of is, but it won't  really improve your range of movement unless you stretch separately. 

I put this video together for my own students to help them improve their legs apart stretch. It is very simple and you can do things at your own pace. The beauty is, your stretching the correct areas of the hip, which improves your range of movement. 

The thing with stretching is there are so many different ways to do it and once your body adapts then it will need to be challenged again. Keeping your stretching fresh ( I change mine every 12 weeks) helps you keep gaining improvements.

There are videos out there telling you get into the splits in a matter of weeks, in my experience there is no such thing as a quick fix. Stretching takes time, lots of patience, self motivation and correct form, exactly what your martial arts training requires.

If you like this routine, try it  3 times a week for 6 weeks and you should see some very noticeable results!

I will put more videos out if you want alternatives, just let me know.
