Xena Posted January 9, 2005 Report Share Posted January 9, 2005 I have two questions to ask about some stretches I find quite difficult to do which involves muscle tightness, but I have no idea how to remedy it. The first stretch is where you are sitting with the soles of your feet pressed together in front of you, butterfly style, and then I try to lean forward to touch my head on the floor in front of me..or try to. No matter what why I go about it, I end up feeling like a little old lady with my shoulders all hunched and nowhere near the floor. So what's keeping me from reaching my goal? Which muscles do I need to be strengthening and/or stretching. What am I doing wrong? Secondly, I seem to have incredibly tight quads (top of thigh). I do that stretch where you hold your ankle and bend your leg up behind you, but to be honest I worry with my knees with that one. I do try to stretch quite gently with regards to those muscles as I worry about straining my knee, but if I miss a few days, they become tight again..what am I doing wrong? Thanks for any insights, I know how impossible these questions are to answer, but any tips would be much appreciated. Jeanette Quote Link to comment
