The ‘over the door’ leg flexibility strap is designed to improve your leg flexibility in ballet, gymnastics, martial arts etc
Packaged in fabric bag with exercise leaflet for 6 basic exercises.
General tips: • Please check with your dance teacher, doctor, or health professional before stretching if you have an injury or previous injury before commencing exercises. • Place the stopper strap over the door you will use, with the stopper on the other side of the door. Close the door firmly. • Test the apparatus in your door without applying full weight- does your door stay firmly shut when you pull on the band? (you may want to lock it) • Only stretch when muscles are warm • Feel no pain- only stretch to the point of mild tension, not to pain. Once your muscle eases, you can stretch a little further. • Hold the stretch for 10-30 seconds. Don’t bounce! • Pay attention to the posture in the rest of your body • Always progress gradually to stretch further each week- flexibility changes slowly. Stop if painful beyond the normal stretch sensation • Focus on the muscle you are stretching • Breathe normally during each stretch • Practice often
