Top 5 Fridays! 5 Reasons Why I Don’t Use the Sleeper Stretch and Why You Shouldn’t Either


Ah, the sleeper stretch.  Pretty popular right now, huh, especially in baseball players?  Seems like a ton of people are preaching the use of the sleeper stretch and why everyone needs to use it.  It’s so popular now that physicians are asking for it specifically.
I don’t like the sleeper stretch and I rarely use it, in fact I haven’t used it in years.  I don’t think you should use it either.
There, I said it, I felt like I really had the get that off my chest!
Every meeting I go to, I see more and more people talking like the sleeper stretch is the next great king of all exercises.  Then I get up there and say I don’t use it and everyone looks at me like I have two heads!  Call me crazy, but I think we probably shouldn’t be using it as much as we do.
In fact, I actually think it causes more harm than good.
