It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog entry… I'm so sorry! The Holiday Season has been absolutely crazy for my family, as I’m sure it has for most of you!!
The flexistretcher is $59.95 (US) and it comes in three colors - teal, pink, and grey. If you have a Flexistretcher, comment below what color you have!
Next weekend I’ll be posting a full video review/tutorial with my Flexistretcher on the Live On Pointe youtube channel. Meanwhile, here are a few pictures of some stretches you can easily do with a Flexistretcher.
Stretch 1: Arabesque
Make sure you keep your shoulders REALLY square, and think of closing your ribs as you engage your abdominals, making this an active stretch.
Stretch 2: Penché
Stretch 3: Front Extensions & Layouts
Again, focus on keeping your shoulders really square, and engaging your standing leg so your arch doesn't role forward. This is also a great stretch to gain flexibility for layouts!
Stretch 4: Side Extensions
Stretch 5: Middle Splits
Place the flexistretcher's loops over both your feet, open your legs into a middle split, and wrap center of the flexistretcher behind your neck or upper back. You can do this stretch with pointed or flexed feet (I prefer pointed). Make sure to engage your quads to stabilize your knees, and use your abdominals to maintain your balance.
I hope you find these exercises useful! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a comment below, and don't forget to watch my Flexistretcher video tutorial! :)
