    I’ve been working out intensely for several months now, but only recently started following the Spartan WOD. It’s amazing and I feel even better than before. Problem is, I can’t seem to get these stretches as well as I want to. Will it come with time? And how long should it take before I realize I’m not pushing myself enough? I can definitely feel it stretching, though.

      This is very pro yoga level, it could takes months of practice to get here. Start slow, aka do a lunge but stop wherever *you* feel the stretch start. Don’t push yourself into these poses or you’ll just open yourself up to injury.

        Great advice Tessa, thanks for jumping in. yes, Ryan, don’t rush! Ever. You’ve got a lifetime to gradually increase your ability to stretch! Relax into it.

    I can’t quite tell the difference between the Triangle and Head to Knee – what am I missing?
