Guest Tagiloni Posted January 25, 2006 Report Share Posted January 25, 2006 Greetings experts and fellow forum users I am a 13 year old dancer and am trying to improve my flexibility, but i am having a bit of angst about front\back splits (not side\side splits). With my legs straight, I can sink down and just about reach the ground, but am still a few degrees off . Of course holding this "hovering" position an inch above the ground is strenuous for my knees and arms and I can't hold the position nearly long enough to get the benifits of the stretch. Do any of our experts have any exercises or stretches that I could do to lengthen the ligamets and muscles that come into play here, without having to hold this strenuous position for long periods of time!
