Is this for real? What about just stretching hip flexors and lower weight glute bridges/hip thrusts?

gave it a half hearted go (only walked for about 20 minutes but a lot of it was up hill)

unless my jump suddenly has gotten better I think it worked. don't know exactly how much but there was a noticeable improvement, possibly about 2 inches. not bad.

awesome. fwiw, i do this on the long plane rides for work: get up periodically and walk up and down the aisle or walk around in circles in the galleys flexing my glutes as hard as i can on each step. keeps things awake when you're otherwise sitting still for 11+ hours.

I like to flex my quads one at a time at a rapid pace during class. I figure it keeps my muscles warm and ready to fire in the event of a pickup game, etc. Weird, but I think it works

i noticed some explosiveness from walking regularly in the past.

walking 1-3 hours seems really..... excessive though.

really? i spent the last week walking 3 or more hours every day (tourism!) and it felt fine. 1-3 hours of glute-clench walking does sound like a bit much, at the very least it'd take a lot of focus.

Every year my family goes for a hike on Christmas Eve, so I gave it a try then. I would say it put 3-4 inches on my vert. Right before the hike I hit my head a little bit on a ceiling in my house, giving me about .5-1 additional inches from the ceiling height. 48 hours later I still felt exhausted, after 72 hours I boomed it.

Ceiling is a little less than 30 inches from my head. I apologize for the shitty music.

I love the feeling of taking slightllly exaggerated steps with glutes flexed hard to stretch the hip flexors. I'd love to try this.

It's just one of the reasons I want people to run and sprint so much - it trains the hip hyperextension at high frequency, volume and intensity, and it dynamically stretches the hip flexors.

I can't think of a better way to become glute dominant.

Also before i do sprinting, as part of my warm up, I do large lunge walks to stretch the hip flexors out, as knee up step as far as you can and lunge and then come forward extending hip and locking knees coming up and start next step and this adds explosiveness to my sprints, as my sprints feel faster and explosive.

I do about 20m of giant walking lunges.

Try doing some side planks before sprinting, like 2x30s each side and see if you walk and run differently after them.
