Topic - Leg/hip flexibility

Mr Fuller on 29 Dec 2012
My flexibility in my hips and hamstrings is just embarrassing. I'm some way off being able to touch my toes, can't sit cross-legged, and as for high-steps... forget it. It definitely affects my ability to climb some routes (usually slabs outdoors or when indoor bouldering) and I have to pull way harder than someone who can 'frog' or bridge better than me. I've already improved a fair bit, but want some motivation because I find stretching so boring... so, give me some inspiring stories of success/improvement. I watched Cirque de Soleil recently... is it possible for someone with dire flexibility, age 25, to do the splits one day? Is little and often the best way with stretching?
