Looks like I’ve found the right routine for the time being -same as before really.
4x15 minute sets 3 to 4 times per week (thats 3-4 days in a row): 5 minutes squats with weight BTC 10 minutes hanging in OTS position but using JAI stretching technique (2-3 seconds stretch & 2 seconds relaxation)
Also a few sets of 20 JAI stretches throughout the day.
Current: 6.125 x 5
Goal: 7.5 x 6
Congrats. Keep up the good work! How long have you been doing this particular routine?
I’ve been doing this particular routine for about 4 weeks.
I think the ‘squat-hanging’ is a fantastic way to start off the session despite a high LOT. Also, I reckon the JAI stretching technique is a very effective way to grow (for me at least) -although of course I have little to go by so far other than how it feels during PE & afterwards.
Just for pure interest sake, I emailed the JAI weblink http://www.runnersworld.com/home/0,…-80-567,00.html to someone I used to work with who I knew had suffered with chronic achilles tendon stiffness -he thought the technique was so good that he has now incorporated JAI stretching into his Martial Arts class (he teaches Karate).
