Xena Posted September 9, 2002 Report Share Posted September 9, 2002 My teacher did a bit of floor barre this weekend and she showed us this exercise. You sit with your legs in wide second, back straight. YOu place your hands in front of you on the floor and lean forward slightly so some of your weight is on your arms and hands, back is still straight. Then you attmept to lift your legs one at a time, not using the major quad muscle on top, but rather a combination of your inner thighmuscles and abs. Did my legs lift? I tried and I tried, I managed about a centimeter today, but all in all they felt like concrete...and I am shocked at how such a simple exercise could be so difficult and why is it? I tried the mind over matter thing, and the relaxing thing and the breathing and nothing helped. What is this exercise telling me? what do I need to work on? and has anyone or does anyone else do this exercise and if so were you as appaling as I was when you first started it?
