morninglorie Posted August 1, 2013 Report Share Posted August 1, 2013 I hate to make a whole topic for this silly question, but I couldn't find the answer in all my searching... How often should one do the rotation exercises (in the sticky above, from Ms. Clara)? A lot of my current problems/corrections in class are stemming from my sometimes lack of rotation, so I wanted to start doing exercises and stretching more regularly. Should I do them daily? Every other day? More than once a day? I don't want to over do it, but I also want to make sure I'm doing them often enough to help. I'm doing two classes a week at the moment, but I will be moving up to at least 3 within the next couple of weeks (and the studio wants me to start taking the advanced class, eep!). My turnout isn't horrible, but I've definitely lost strength in my inner thighs/hamstrings that I'd like to get back. When I try to lift my leg higher, I start losing the rotation and lifting with my quad and hip flexor. Boo, hiss! P.S. I have Deborah Vogel's book about turnout (thanks for the recommendation, Pas de Quoi!) and have been trying to do the exercises/stretches in there, and from the IADMS article, but again, not sure how often I should be doing these things! Thanks as always, everyone! Quote Link to comment
