    stretches for squats

    What are some good stretches for squats? I pulled my hip flexor the other day going to low when squatting. I want to know some good stretch’s for my leg muscles so I don’t keep getting hurt. Also should I continue to squat and do deadlights even though it doesn’t hurt when I do them? It only hurts when I bring my knee to my chest and touch my heel to my ass.

    Go to the library or a book store. There you will find tons of books on stretching. It would be nearly impossible to describe them to you. We could do a Vid, but that would take forever.

    Try looking at the stretches on here, it's a good start.

    Other than that, I find the yoga poses Balasana or child's pose, Natarajasana or dance pose and Ustrasana or camel pose all help stretch my legs out.

    I think Malley might be able to help with this, stretching seems to be his speciality rather than mine.
