Flexibility Progression!

The only reason as to why I'm writing about flexibility is just because I have finally mastered my backbend!


The only difference is, with a backbend you basically fall into the bridge position from standing up instead of pushing up from the floor.

Due to being a Cheerleader, being flexible is a major skill to obtain. This year I really intend on expanding this and hopefully I can improve my flexibility in regards to improving my  Heel Stretch, Scale & possibly pulling a  Scorpion. These are all "cheer terms" so don't be confused as to what I'm talking about (this is why I've attached links).

I also aim to continue with my handstand, without using a wall for balance of course. Just wanted to photograph myself and see how I hold my body weight up. After attending a Gymnastics class yesterday, I now know a better technique to achieving this.


All in all, I thought that it would be nice to have a short & sweet post just because I wanted to share my improvements and hope to look back at this in the future and see the differences between now & what's to come. Plus this makes me feel like a health fanatic when ideally I'm just working out here and there!
