Today's Workout

Care to join me? 

I started with several sets of pull ups. 

Then I targeted my delts. 

Finally, I performed some really challenging stretching exercises. 

By far one of the most difficult areas of the body to stretch are the hamstrings. My massage therapist has me doing these 3 times a week. The key is not bending your knees too much or else you will end up performing more of a knee exercise than a hamstring exercise. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds and then repeat two more times. 

If you want to build bigger, stronger legs, you have to be sure you have both adequate mobility and hip flexibility. Stretching will not only help to loosen up that tight hip flexor of yours but also mobilize your hips in general. There's no exercise I like to do less than stretching. But there's no way of getting out of this.
