Default Flexibility

My flexibility sucks bad, mostly my lower body. So I've started putting in some dynamic warm ups and stretching before and after my workouts.

Example for before my workouts, I do some light plyometrics, high knees, things like that and after my workouts static stretches.

Is this what's needed for good flexibility?

if you just stretch for 25 minutes a day you will become extremely flexible in no time. I tried out a yoga class for once a week, but it was way too uncomfortable in more ways than one.

Ok, so basically for flexibility, stretching is the best right?

yeah, i used to train martial arts and we would just do 15-20 minutes of static stretching each day for warm up. I was younger so that was a factor, but i could get close to doing the splits and had a world of flexibility. I've lost that since then but I'm looking to get it back eventually.

I do some static stretching such as touching my toes but I also find it useful to use exercises which combine stretching with other aspects of working out. For example I find Hindu pushups help with flexibility in the back and shoulders while also giving the strength producing benefits. Also I hold a medicine ball in front of me and swing it from side to side which helps my flexibility in the waist.
