bubble-tea Posted November 11, 2004 Report Share Posted November 11, 2004 When you tendue to the side, then pick up your foot so that it is rasied off the floor at about 90 degrees, do you use your inner thigh muscles? I always feel like I'm clenching my quads, and usually after the excercise my quads feel kind of sore-ish. How do I actually know when I'm using my inner thigh muscles properly? Also, when you are in demi-pointe in first and fifth position, do you need to squeeze the inner thigh muscles? I was taught that way, but the teacher I go to now says to squeeze the muscle under your bottom at the top of the thigh. Quote Link to comment
