Hi Martin,

and welcome to your custom training program.

Below you will find 4 different flexibility programs all custom made just for you!

I know it is a lot and you are just starting off with your flexibility training.
You can pick and chose from the program below. I would recommend working your front splits always right after your hamstrings! 
Make sure to train every part at least 4 times per week. You can definitely also stretch more but make sure to keep 1 full day of rest.

I know stretching sucks. It is super hard to get started. Challenge yourself for just this month. Create a habit and do not be lose on yourself! It gets easier. It gets less uncomfortable and as soon as improvements roll in you will be absolutely addicted. Plus handstands will get easier by the second.

Please always make sure to warm up well. Break a light sweat! stay warm during stretching. Do not stretch where it’s windy or by an air con. Sauna, hot tub etc –> Tracksuit –> stretching is the lazy combination. Running 8-12min is the inspired variation 😉

You decide

 

Enjoy and let me know if you got any questions!

Practice

Flexibility is uncomfortable and takes time. Yet it is rewarding and absolutely crucial the more you train!
If that doesn’t motivated you. The fear of only getting stiffer when you get old sure should!

Enjoy
