Extreme lig stretch - For loose lig people especially
I originally posted this some years back when I did PE for 3 months (my personal record lol). Getting back into it once again, I figured I would re-post this for those struggling to stretch your ligs, either because of your natural looseness or from already stretching them with traditional up/down/side methods. Sorry if this has since become popularized, but regardless I thought I would share it.
When I first began PE, I did the usual lig stretches. I stretched and stretched, but never felt it in my ligs very much. I guess I naturally have loose ligs and I figured I couldn’t gain anything from attempting to stretch. Eventually, I came across my own way of doing a lig strech after noticing fowfers at least gave me some feeling of a stretch, as well as using a fulcrum. I eventually gained a 1/4” in a month or two, which I though impossible for myself originally. I quit shortly after, but I will test it again this time around over a longer period (hopefully) and see where it goes.
Here is the basic jist of this stretch, what I would call a floor stretch:
Lay down on the ground flat on your back. Lift up one leg and stretch your guy outward and down under your thigh by reaching under your thigh, not over. I usually like to pull it upward pointing it back up at me a bit, so my buttocks can help keep it in place a bit, though this isn’t necessary just a personal preference. At this point, it is sort of like a lying fowfer to one side. Once you’ve stretched it, begin to lower your leg/foot back to the ground. Depending on your ligs, you may or may not begin to feel a stretch in the opposite lig. Use your best judgment on what is a good stretch for you, but for me I keep going. I take my foot all the way to the ground and now have the beginning of a fulcrum stretch, but it is minimal for me. Here is the winning part of the equation. Now bring up your opposite leg and pull your knee towards your chest/head as much as you need to get a good stretch. Your buttocks/thigh should be keeping the stretch in place, though you may need to use your hand if on a hard ground (in bed is best I find for keeping it in place with no hands). Even with my very loose ligs, I can only bring my opposite leg up a bit at this point. I get a definite stretch and slight soreness from this routine. I have never really done it for a continuous routine for months and months, but plan on doing so this time. At least in my mind, its results should be similar to regular stretching, it’s just for those of us that can’t get a good stretch using traditional methods. For those of you that DID get good stretches originally, but have stretched your ligs beyond this point, I would like to hear back if you can get a good stretch from this.
