So I did something different today. I did all 8 stretches of the Legs and Hips section of get bent without the PNF part and held them for 1 minute each instead. I ended up doing the splits on both sides. I even incorporated a backbend and a twist while holding them. I was able to hold each side for a minute without issue, and then redo them again after my backbends with no problems either! I’m very impressed with the progress from a class I took two weeks ago (and the rest I’ve taken since then)! I reached my goal of being able to stretch for 15 minutes (instead of an hour) and then do splits! Crazy!

As for backbends, I had some improvement on the one arm cobra, everything else was pretty much maintained. I will be doing Emil’s classes again this coming week!
