How much stretching is too much?

Hello,I'm a complete beginner and I know almost nothing about the right way to stretch. I have been using Fit and Bendy videos and the Contortionist's Handbook from Simply Circus as well as some yoga. I have only been stretching for less than a month, but I'm already hooked. I am afraid however that I might be doing it wrong. I've heard things like too much stretching (i.e. 3 hours/day) can be harmful to your flexibility, that I should do only light stretches every other day. As I start to…See More

Frontbending on Cerceau

Back to contortion after a long hiatus! I like to think of myself as a backbender, but I tried frontbending today. Not too bad, even if I do say so myself!

Which is more common, Backbending or Frontbending?

Started by Victoria G. in General. Last reply by Victoria G. yesterday. 6 Replies

I've always thought that frontbenders were way more common than backbenders - out of the general population, not necessarily contortionists. But I cannot find any information on this topic.When I took gymnastics, approximately 80% of the them were…Continue

3 years

Crumbs, is it over 3 years since my last post? As motivation, I thought I wouldn't post until I could actually *do* Kandasana. I didn't imagine it would take this long. Latest news is that I can do the position, it hurts, and I can't take my hands away, yet. However, progress is being made, albeit slowly, and I have learnt that you just have to take time after each session to allow the legs to recover. Lots of time. About a week. You might think it would be better to train less and more…

First improvement :-)

Posted by Silke on September 22, 2014 at 17:14 0 Comments

It's now almost 2 months since I started building up a training routine. I started with running and short stretching sessions end of july. The running part was just a little bit of running (max. 5 minutes at the beginning and not more than 13min in august) and a lot of walking in between.  The stretching part was about 15-30 minutes, sometimes up to 1 hour.

First 3 weeks of september I succeded to do my training for 5 days a week. Now I am able to run nearly 30 minutes without walking…
