    Let me know if you find it helpful.
    Sounds like what I was looking for. Thanks!

I know it will help as I have put many people on it with life changing results.
    Sounds good, Jon. I'll take it into consideration.

    The difficulty for older flexibility-lacking folks is that as long as they are doing the stretches/exercises regularly, they will be alright. But a week or two of not doing them, it can easily be back to square one. Different for strength.

    I must respectfully disagree. I sometimes don't work on splits for months at a time but get them back quickly when I start doing them again. IMHO, stretching demonstrates a different kind of muscle control than strength but it is a skill nonetheless and, like the proverbial riding a bicycle, once you learn it, you don't forget it.

    Sport Stretch, 311 stretches for sports, by Michael J.Alter, publisher Human Kinetics, could be the book you are looking for. There is a lot of sports and conditioning resources at :
    http://sportsconditioning.humankinetics.com
    Quite basics, but sometimes it's just what we need.

    Gunny, you are not old, I am close to 55, my training age is 40, and I lifted a lot of weight. I was lucky to have good trainers, and don't have all this kind of pains, back, shoulders and so on...
    I am a new RKC and wasn't tested with " senior weights " , I trained forth new RKCII?...in case, and also work in Sports.
    Stretching is an important part of all kind of weights routines. Dynamic as warm up and static at cool down. Try to have a quick look on Human Kinetics, I use this book for my own stretch.

    It's a good idea to consider foam rolling also.

    Yes, I forgot foam rolling, very good for stretch and to relax tight muscles.
    I recently " had" a kind of massage on my shoulders and neck with a kind of plastic small stick.
    A little bit painful, the pressure was tough, but my muscles were much more relax and find easier the Kettlebell bent press.
    I never had this kind of "massage" before, and not possible to do it without a partner trainer, but I find the result interesting. And, sorry again, for my English, but most of the time I don't have enough time to re- read and correct my gramaticals mistakes. I try to stay as simple as possible, but I always in rush, I need a worshop on " how to manage my time ".

    Default More Flexible WITHOUT stretching

    Check out Dave Asprey, the bulletproof executive, as he puts his ankle behind his head without warming up. And he rarely practices any stretching.

    I’m learning that diet may have a great deal to do with flexibility and mobility.

    Asprey claims his ‘Bulletproof Diet,’ and especially collagen supplementation, has made his joints healthy, and thus, flexible.

    I believe (belief only so far) that if we are really healthy, the body ought to work as it is supposed to. I’m working at experimenting with this.

    I’ve recently upped my magnesium and vitamin K2 supplementation. It’s only been a month so far, but my mobility and flexibility have increased a little beyond limits that have persisted for a number of months. I have a regular 'super joints-inspired' routine that I practice each day. I’m thinking this de-calcification makes a difference. I haven’t tried Dave Asprey’s collagen supplement yet, but that will be my next experiment.

    Final note: Dave Asprey is worth looking into. Well-known as a ‘bio-hacker, he is a computer security expert and entrepreneur who spent 15 years and $250,000 to hack his own biology. He upgraded his brain by >20 IQ points, lowered his biological age, and lost 100 lbs without using calories or exercise.
