Measuring progress - 03-14-2010, 07:07 AM

Hi Guys,

Just wondering how people are measuring their flexibility progress. Do you just go by "feel", take photos of yourself in your deep stretches or have some other way of measuring improvements? Would love to hear any suggestions.

Depends on the kind of stretch. If one can go higher. lower, deeper, more sidewards, reach farther etc. Or if you can hold it for at least 30 seconds, or 2 minutes or 5 mins. Mainly, I know I got there if I can do what's illustrated or even exceed it, hold it for the recommended amount of time and feel no pain or tightness whatsoever.

You can go by how you feel, when stretching yourself.
If you are stretching a client, I recommend measuring foot distance and/or angle.
