Soft stretching= sitting positions whereby you widen the hip incrementally. This has been the only effective stretching routine for me. Everything else where you force the stretching has only caused me pain and setbacks in flexibility. And let's just say TMA schools all incorporate such routines based on 80s science... My question: Is there a point of diminishing returns using this method. Do you need to at one point upgrade your stretching challenges if you want to make the next step in flexibility or will I be able to further climb in static flexibility using this method only?
