Penismith, apologies for not responding earlier as I didn’t see the new post. I know we’ve had discussions about this since so I won’t go into detail. For everyone else, the basic idea was that I was doing a passive warmup while browsing the net or whatever, then only doing about 3 mins of stretching. I did that twice per week. Gains have finally stalled again, but I did make a 1/4”+ into new territory from my last break, and all without doing what I would call ‘damage’ to tissues. Time for another long wait until I can do it again and hopefully repeat the same kind of gains.
Straight8, there are some things on your list there that I hadn’t considered. I guess I have this skewed mind set that if it’s in the mainstream then we’d know about it by now. But I could be well off the mark there. My current reading in this area is about Thymosin beta-4.
