This is a nice article I found on a simple stretching/mobility routine that anyone can do quickly every day.

I personnally do a modified version of it and I find that it really helps.

It's by Joe Defranco, here is the link : DeFranco's Training ..:: The Ultimate Way To Become A Better Athlete ::..

(It's a little bit down in the page, it's called "Agile Eight")

Stretching is very important to do and yet I always succeed in neglecting to do it before and after my training routines.

I've always got a good stretch from placing your hand flat (so that fingers point to floor) on a wall, then turn your torso away..
Also one thing I've found through experience is if say you got a cramp in your thigh, strike the area that's cramping with your palm or fist. Seems to stop the cramp for me.

Hi I have just started lifting and I was never very flexible but I have noticed I'm becoming les ans less flexible. I'm wanting to know what stretches do you guys do and is anyone ever experiencing this by chance

Even a short amount of time (10-15) minutes can calm the mind, provide the mental break and give your body a chance to recharge. Flexibility also increases blood and nutrient supply to muscles, thereby possibly reducing muscle soreness. Therefore stretching is just as important as exercise.

Just one thing for anyone doing any intense stretching to remember, it can also cause DOMS as bad as those after any really heavy workout session; so, if the idea for the stretching is to recuperate and/or ease muscles, don't overdo the stretching aspect.

I agree that intense stretching causes DOMS, anything we over do can cause DOMS. However, gentle stretching may also help reduce it effects. It may hurt initially but as you complete the stretch, it may release some tension you have. However what is the best treatment for muscle soreness.
