cynmckee Posted March 7, 2013 Report Share Posted March 7, 2013 This is my first post here, so please be gentle. I have a 13 year old daughter that is having some trouble with flexibility, but only in one particular area it seems. She can do a 180 ponche, or pretty darn close when not as warm and in other types of dance can get her legs up to her ears, but the middle splits and 180 turn out just seems to be out of reach for her. She told me they stretch every day and she really works to improve but it is just not improving like the other stretches have. I asked her where she is feeling the stretch the most because I was wondering if there was a problem in her hips. She occasionally has snapping hips. She said she is feeling the stretch in her inner thigh muscles. Can everyone get this if they work hard enough or can there be a physiology issue that is preventing progress? This is the one area that really seems to have her teachers up in arms and is holding her back. Do I just tell her to forge ahead or should she be seeing a doctor or should she just accept her limitations? Quote Link to comment
