  • Excellent infoI purchased the ‘hamstring roller’ as a result of this video, never knew it existed. Going to also grab the ‘land mine’ attachment. ������

  • great video guys! quick question; i’m a martial artist in my mid 40s, about 5″ from a full split. will it be safe and healthy on the hip joints if I get to a full split? or should I just try to maintain current flexibility? just trying to see what’s best for long term training and health for the joints. thanks again for your input.

  • Great stuff. You’re quite flexible, Brad. I would add that for more advanced stretching, look into ballistic stretching & loaded stretching as well. Helped me a lot to achieve my splits.

    Static stretching is a very slow process and imho not super effective if you want to become really flexible.

  • Beastmode!!
    Great explanations & demonstrations @ all stations. Hammys are w/o a doubt my problem areas. By October I expect their going to be muuuuch better.

  • Never thought I’d be here getting advice for Muay Thai class tomorrow. Anything on having tight hips would be great! I can stretch my glutes out fine. It’s the hip muscles that are on the sides that I can’t get stretched. There’s almost always pain on where the top of my femur can be felt going into the hip joint. What makes me think it is posture, bad form, etc. Is that it’s on both sides pretty evenly.

  • have a question please help me.. i have done ACL reconstruction so they took my hamstring for ACL but it didn’t recovered. So how can i recover it or would it recover or not???? Please help me plz

  • I’ve take all of his advise jumped out of my comport zone, and now im on target of my dream body and inspire other people to be fit Aswel, i’ve even just created a youtube channel to follow my progress, my first vlog is already uploaded i would love some support/feedback so please hit SUBSCRIBE and check it out. peace

  • I’m not too fond of machines. Most people overload those machines and destroy their lower back (check out Athlean-X’s video on this). Plus, the machine isn’t natural, meaning that you can’t move naturally. The bands allow you to move naturally. Same with any HGR or hip hinge/ DL.

  • This looks good, but I was unable to listen due to distraction of background noise and you yelling with echo. Poor presentation, unlike many of your others.
