Good stretch for BJJ

I try to do more and more stretching after training and at home. Not necessarily streching to become more flexible but to avoid aches, pains and injuries. There are a number of good classic movements such as:

- back roll stretch for the lower back
- nodding your head up and down and from side to side to open your neck
- butterfly strech
- stretching the back of your thighs by grabbing your toes while your legs are extended..

I usually end up getting by upper back and rhomboids really sore. I guess this is due to pulling the lapel and sleeves all the time..This is a stretch I like to do to ease that pain.


Basically you just clasp your hands together or if you can, grab your elbows with your hands in the same position. Then you just pull back while keeping your feet on the ground.
