Variation on the downward stretch
I was pulling straight down today and realized I hadn’t read many guys methods of straight down tugging. So I thought I’d share my pull. I start by wrapping with an part of an ace bandage and do an underhand grip. Thats the grip where my palm is facing outwards with my fingers curled toward me with my thumb straight out. Okay, after that I lean over and pull straight down behind me (between my legs) sort of 1/2 between the cheeks direction. This is nothing new and has been discussed many times before. This is where I added something I stumbled upon a few weeks ago. While holding that stretch, elbow locked resting on my stomach, I suck my stomach in and slowly raise to a full upright standing position. I notice this gives me a HUGE lig stretch. I go from bent over to fully upright in about 5 seconds. I repeat this about 5 times or until I can’t take the lig pull any more. This stretch never fails to give me nice sore ligaments for sure. Hope it helps everyone.
