I'm trying to formulate a Strength/Flex routine for my flyers this year for each practice, as last season we had 3 with good flexibility(could be better though) and 2 with IMO ugly flexibility ( "scorps", low heel stretches). As coaches, we told the girls to stretch every day, etc. etc. but as the saying goes "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them drink", and by the time I came in mid season, they were already working the routine. So basically since its mostly the same girls coming back this year ,I'm making flyers stay late after practice and stretch. I have some activities already written down from my past experience and the fortheloveoftumbling website such as: Front Flex -Splits with the feet on a mat to elevate and extend the legs - Heel stretch where flyer is down on both knees, base stands behind and pulls the stretch in front - Front leg lifts (flyer puts heel stretch on shoulder of girl in front of her, has to slowly lift leg off her shoulder and back down) -Resistance lifts (flyer tries to lift leg above 90 degree angle, but other girl pushes down to try and resist) Back Flex -Backbends (legs/feet together and straight) -Shoulder/back stretch (flyer lays on stomach, other girl gently pulls arms back to arch flyer's back) -Seal stretch (lay on stomach, arms straight and holding body up, attempt to bring feet to head) -Back leg lifts(similar to front leg lifts but in arabesque) -Assisted stretch (flyer pulls scorp, other girl "hugs" the flyer together to help the flyer stretch the scorp closer and up) -Wall stretch (one foot on the floor, other kicked up as if trying to do the splits on the wall, then assistant helps flyer bring chest up as far as she can) -Elbow stand stretch (flyer does handstand on her elbows somewhat close to a wall, walks feet down wall and holds) Plus ab and core conditioning...... What else do you do during strength/flex classes at your gym? Conditioning? Other stretches? If you don't attend a strength/flex class, what else do you do to stretch?
