The Russian splits. Have you tried them ?? Have you tried them the way the really should be done??
Probably not. I had great difficulty today, as my excellent instructor Lucero at PilatesWorks, threw these at me at the end of my session, when I thought I was done (after running and pelvic lift).
I had trouble even standing still in the position on my right leg. My right side is my trouble side, my right SI is off, my right hip is tight, my right ribcage is torqued, etc, etc. It was not sooo bad on my left leg, but still hard to move the carriage while staying stable in the pelvis.
When I did the Russian splits before it was much more about the actual split, maybe too much dance in the teacher's brain. I am quite flexible so that's not really hard for me to do, and not really beneficial or right! This is another exercise for me to work at, as my Knee stretches continues to improve! Yay!
