Does anyone hear use or has tried Romwod.com? I am thinking of doing rom wod as well as mobility wod. Do/did you like it? I know KStar does not recommend static stretching, only PNF types and it seems to be static stretching but I could be wrong. Thanks 🙂
I just signed up for the 7 free day for ROMwod yesterday night. So far I am pretty impressed. here are my pros and cons for each website (note I still have little experience with ROMwod
Thank you BMAN17 🙂
That was super helpful. Right now I am doing both mobility wod and rom wod and was finding that rom wod is only static stretching which KStar does not recommend. They videos did mention at one point that the stretching is meant to be super passive so that the tendons and something else will stretch and not so much about the muscle. I have been doing them and it doesn’t seem like my flexibility has increased so I thought about maybe finding something with PNF stretching like KStar recommends.
You aren’t seeing change because:
“You really just need to cue your nervous system a little and hang out
at end range for a bit. The part about hanging out at the end of your
range is the important part.
More on what is happening with PNF
Hi Kaitlin, Thank you for that link. Very interesting. I think I will definitely try to incorporate PNF stretching into my routine instead of ROM WOD. 🙂
When I first stumbled upon mobilitywod I though Kstar was a genius and right about everything. I still agree that he is awesome, but I have found that there is something to say for exploring various methods. on one side it makes sense to me that static stretching doesn’t work, but on the other side I take a look at gymnists who are uber flexible, and base there mobility largely on static stretching. I am going to combine the two websites and see how it goes for a week.
Very true Bman 🙂 Good point about the gymnastics people. Though usually they only get that flexible when they start as a little kid. Very challenging to get that flexible as an adult if you have never been that flexible before.
I would love to hear what you think after your week is up. 🙂
Bman, I have never seen rom wod but will have to check it out. From my experience reading health and fitness stuff, there are many people out there and many schools of thought on various topics. I have a group of professionals I tend to follow, try to look for places where there is common agreement and bring those things into my health and fitness program.
