The above video is of me showing a trick on how to increase hamstring flexibility instantly. Why you would need to do this, I’m not sure. The only time I’ve ever seen a purpose for it is when my sister had to do the V-sit and reach for the President’s Physical Fitness test. Other than that, it’s just kind of a fun trick to do to people.
Let’s see if anyone can come up with a reason why the trick works. Throw guesses out there, it doesn’t matter if it’s way off. Eventually, I’ll post the reasoning of why I think it works.
Whoever comes up with ‘correct’ or plausible or interesting answers, I’ll send all of them a couple good powerpoints by experts in the field that I have that aren’t online anywhere. That means, give it a go, use your brain, and I’ll send e-mail you some powerpoints.
One is a very interesting look at Thyroid function and athletic performance, including blood work from world class athletes. Another is a presentation on Strength training for endurance athletes (runners, cyclists focused) that does a great job of summarizing all the research. So Guess Away!
