As the title says, I've been doing static hip stretches twice a day for about 6 months, and have had only slight increases in my flexibility. This was at request of a physiotherapist for some knee/hip problems. My hip flexibility is atrocious in about every direction. I am trying to figure out what I am doing wrong and looking for a little motivation to continue. My body: * 25M * Slight imbalance/rotation in my hips (this is what my physio is working on) * Am working at a desk job, but get up frequently to walk/stretch * I exercise, cycle a few times a week, dance, hike, do yoga, and am overall very fit and active * I cannot do the "half side split" mentioned in the FAQ * Forward fold angle is about 100 degrees (locked knees), but can touch the ground without too much trouble if my knees are slightly bent and I allow my back to round. My routine (twice daily, for each leg): * Lying on back piriformis stretch, 2x hold for 30s * Lying on back hamstring stretch with a belt, 2x hold for 30s * Lying on side quadriceps stretch, 2x hold for 30s I find that often when stretching I either feel nothing, or I hit a spot where I get slowly mounting pain in the stretched muscle. With some stretches I find it's a lot easier to get a "good stretch" for example with forward fold. Sometimes I feel almost nothing although I am exerting a large amount of force on the stretched limb, for example pulling into a hamstring stretch. Any advice is much appreciated.
