  • Straight hamstrings
It isn't that it says stretching is bad, but that stretches that twist the low back or put in in full flexion are bad, according to the article. Child's pose, for example, was my foundational low back stretch, but that is full flexion, so off the table. These are new ideas for me as well.

I'd appreciate it if people would read the article and then comment. It's pretty convincing, but I'd love to hear form people who have experience with this thing and are willing to read the article. (It's a little long, but very well written, I promise).
