Dear Ginny, As I did the stretching routine from the video for the first time last night following my workout, a few questions popped up. For the most part, they are derived from the interest of time expense. First of all, is it necessary to hold each for 3 sets of 20 seconds or do you have a different opinion on how long to hold them? Second, should I try to do all those stretches everyday or are they meant to be done in groups (like lower body one day, upper the next or something like that)? Third, are they all meant to be done on both sides of the body or are some of them only to be done on one side because of what happens to the muscles when pitching and the idea of trying to get them back to their normal length? Finally, for the back stretches that require a physio ball, I found that I can get a pretty good stretch if I do sort of the same thing only standing up. Is this OK or is it possible that this could be harmful? I guess once I get used to this routine it will go a lot faster. After all, I did have to refer to the video for each one because I couldn’t remember how to do them. I’m just not sure if I would maybe be doing too much. Thanks very much once again. -Darrell Henry
