Amy Reusch Posted April 12, 2001 Report Share Posted April 12, 2001 I wonder how many other adult students find themselves as I do, struggling against my lack of flexibility. It seems sometimes that the harder I fight against it, the tighter my muscles get. I'm only in class one day a week (if that), and so I don't want to just sit back and take it easy... I feel I need to get everything I can out of an exercise... allowing myself to gradually strengthen by staying relaxed as I dance doesn't seem like it would work because I'm not there often enough to strengthen... and I'm so weak that if I don't throw myself 100% into it, I can't do the steps. Any advice out there? (Please don't say "get to class more often", it isn't an option). Perhaps I should give up my current addiction to Ballet Alert and stretch instead. It's hard to have the discipline to stretch regularly during the day if one is no longer pursuing a dance career (it's now almost 20 years since I was in that kind of shape). Quote Link to comment
