Default Creating a basic flexibility program

Hi everyone

This is my first post here. I got Greg's olympic lifting book and DVD yesterday and need to ask a few questions about flexibility programs.

I found this excellent link to one of Coach Sommer's recommendations in another thread: http://gymnasticbodies.com/forum/vie...5&p=9262#p9262

He recommends that beginners start with a once a week rigorous session. Greg recommends that we go at it aggressively. Would aggressively be once a week or more? "Aggressive" isn't defined in the book.

My needs are are hamstring, hip extensor, and adducter. Would an aggressive program be doing each of these twice each for 30 seconds?
  • Straight knee hamstring
  • Bent knee hamstring
  • Spider man
  • Straddle
  • Butterfly
