balletbum74 Posted January 17, 2006 Report Share Posted January 17, 2006 I have the strength (gotta love Pilates) and the flexibility that you need for above 90 degree extension. When I do a partner strech or a heel strech, I can easily hold up my leg. The problem is the movement from passe to the straighten a la second position. It hits 90 whether I'm thoroughly streched out or not. I'm not 100% positive on how the muscles work to support the leg. I know you need to use your abs and gluteas muscles and NOT you hip flexors and quads. Any advice? Quote Link to comment
