Hey!<BR> ok, I think I'm pretty flexible like all my splits are on the ground, and my center stretch is down, but I still can't get my leaps or kicks up, they're so bad! Does it have a lot to do with strength too? And are there any exercises I can do to strengthen in order to leap and kick? Another problem is my turnout. When I sit in a butterfly stretch, my knees are pratically down, but my turnout is so bad! Any help would be soo great!! Thanks!! Image<P>------------------<BR>*<3*Court*<3*
