Tip: Don't Overstretch Before a Seminar

Tomorrow, I'm heading to Victoria to attend a 4-hour seminar with Eddie Bravo. In preparation for this event, I did some extra stretching yesterday, focusing on my groin. Some of Eddie's classic moves require a good deal of flexibility, like the rubber guard for example.

I'm already pretty flexible, but I figured it couldn't hurt to do a little extra. Apparently, it can. While I was doing some yoga stretching, I seem to have overextended myself and pulled a groin muscle. It has been tweaking me all day today! I'm just hoping it'll be okay for tomorrow.

So my tip of the day is don't overstretch or over-train in the day or two leading up to an important seminar or competitive event!
