Thank you. I'm 73 with arthritis in my hips. I started stretching with you last week and already I am having an easier time getting in the bathtub and putting on my shoes and socks, which had become more difficult since staying home so much during the pandemic. This is a great routine, although I can't do everything, but I'm trying and it's working. Thanks again!

I'm on a dance team and lost my flexibility over quarantine. I hope this helps get it back! Fingers crossed!!!
Edit: Omg ty to all the people who liked and replied! I hope all of you get your flexibility back, and here's an update on me!
1. I am almost back with my left split, I never had it but I was so close!
2. My kicks/botmas are the same, and I am sooo happy!
3. I have a triple turn on my right side and that's more than before quarantine.
And I have been following this, but just know once you get back to dance, cheer, kickline, or gymnastics you will be almost as good as before, if not the same or better! I'm rooting for you!

I have been doing this routine about 3x a week for the last month. While I haven't done it every day, I have gotten so much more flexible. I didn't know I had it in me.
I used to absolutely hate stretching - but I've been doing this after every workout and now I look forward to it. I even feel less of the chronic pain in my lower back , which is amazing and unexpected.

If you feel like you can't do these stretches at all right now (like me when I started), know that all you need to do is keep trying! You can do it!!!

Anyone else trying to get flexible now that they're stuck in their house with nothing better to do?

Update #2: I missed a couple of days, but I have mostly been doing this for 3 weeks every night and I am SO much closer to being able to touch my toes. I've never been able to do that or do the splits, but I tried going down into the splits position and I was the closest I've ever been. I was still like 6 inches from the ground, but progress is what is important in this case. Once you make it a routine, you find yourself wanting to stay in the stretches even longer even though it hurts a little bit because you can feel the muscles stretching. How are you guys doing? Have you noticed any improvements?

Update! I have been doing this consistently for the past two weeks and I have seen a MAJOR difference. When I tell you that I am NOT flexible at all, I mean it. I'm going to keep doing this every night before I go to sleep just to have a routine. My biggest piece of advice would be to focus on your breathing while you are stretching. Keep up the good work, guys! :)

I've been doing this routine for a at least two months... Skipping a few day of course... But I am a lot more felxible then I have ever been. At the beginning I couldn't stretch really far, but now I can. I still can't do the middle splits stretch very well, but I am close. Keep on trying everything! You will be a lot more flexible if you don't give up! Have a great day!!!

I was born with brachial plexus paralysis and have double scoliosis. I’ve been doing this stretch routine everyday for about 3 months and I’m amazed at how much better I feel now. I thought having back pain everyday was normal. Now, with simple stretches everyday my back hurts 80% less. I can also touch my toes and do the splits!!!!

I watched this video all the way through and thout ' wow that all looks easy enough'. Fast forward to me actually doing it and I feel like I am dying. Who knew my hips were so tight. I have a lot of work to do. Took lo her than 30 mintues but I made it through to the end.

Her: "Bring one knee to your chest, keep the other straight."

This was my first time doing a fitness workout on YouTube. I’m flexible, but as I got older (I’m 30), my body began to stiffen. This was an amazing stretch workout, and it helped me to not only stretch my body, but to also move out some depressing energy that I was carrying. Thank you so much. I’ve subscribed to your channel and I hope to learn more from you. ❤️

I am obese and have decided to FINALLY take charge when it comes to my health. This 30 minute stretch was the first kind of exercise that I've done in years. I know my form was probably terrible but I know that if I keep at it, I will get better. But as soon as I started, everything started popping. My neck, back, ankles, etc lol and I honestly feel so refreshed now. I know this is an older video but thank you for this. 💗

IMPORTANT REMINDER BEFORE YOU START STRETCHING
make sure you warm up like do jumping jacks or high knees before you start stretching (unless you want hamstring surgery)

luiza shabetnick
luiza shabetnick:
ive been doing it for 2 months, 3-4 times a week. when i could finally fully touch my toes last week without any effort, i cried. i lost 7 kgs, i exercise almost every day, and now i see the results. i can go to the 7th floor without using an elevator and i dont feel out of breath. i can run the stadium 2 times and not feel exhausted afterwards. i started eating healthy, no sugar\fastfood. my skin is clear and literally shining. it is such a joy for me and i literally feel my body is grateful for all the stretches etc. thank you so much! and yes, the first 2 weeks i made myself to go jogging\exercising but now i just want to do it because it brings me joy. crazy! sorry for my english

Upd. Thank you for your kind words, everybody! My progress so far (started in late February, today's middle of June): i am still amazed by how food affects mood and body. My skin is not oily anymore (god, i did not need to buy expensive cleansers/creams to treat that acne?! Just to eat healthy?! What?? Blessed). I feel waaaay less iritated without cause. Stretching helps A LOT with anxiety and depression. I incorporated workouts in my life in such a way it just feels natural to do so. I feel stronger and dont feel dizzy when standing. I dont count callories anymore and dont crazily follow my diet (i felt very conflicted when my boyfriend returned home from marine practice and eated like we used to. We just cook our meals sepparately and eat together and that's ok).

Maddie Rae:
I’m doing this everyday 😌 here’s my progress


Day 1: I started yesterday & didn’t write it, I paused a few times but afterwards I felt great 😌 definitely shaking haha still can’t do the splits 😂

Day 2: didn’t pause at all today, she’s super good with dialog 😌 the hip stretch about 3rd to the end is really helping with getting lower to the ground w the splits

Arda çekirdek
Arda çekirdek:
I started to this video like 1-2 months ago and i add more moves to program. Also i searched about strecthing infos in this time. Actually it’s good for beginning but it doesn’t give more than beginning. Also i don’t recommend this video.

The thing i didn’t reccomend this video is she doesn’t talk much about movements. I just realized that i was doing wrong some movements for like 2 months. For example, while you are standing up and trying to touch your toes, you should always keep your back straight. But all i try was bending. It was just an example and there are many of them. She should talk about how to do the movements. I won’t follow along this anymore..

Thanks for the video but this words are for starters and they should search more.
