Lumbar flexion and frontbending question

Hi guys,I am new here and I have some questions tha have been bugging for quite some time. I am a dancer and I actually trained some level of backbending because I find it very beautiful. However, it is important to maintain a general level of flexibility and form to do things well and I noticed something about my frontbends that made me worried.I have a normal range for someone who's moderately flexible when frontbending, not amazing, not horrible, just your regular folk. But I went to watch…See More

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 often,…See More

Bad Cramping Recently?

Started by Maria Blaise in Advice. Last reply by Helena Prado 10 hours ago. 6 Replies

Recently while stretching I've been getting numerous cramps in the inner sides of both my feet. It happens mostly while I'm pointing my feet but it also happens when I'm not. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?

Does anybody have hamstring stretches besides the pike they could share? I have don't have great hamstring flexibility and I do the pike stretch every night but it doesn't help much. Also how long should I hold a stretch for? Thank you in advance!

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…
