Use Stretch Bands

Right length

To make sure that the flexistretcher is at the right length before exercise, adjust each strap separately, making sure that they are equal at all times.

Shorter nylon straps

The exercise will be made more difficult the shorter the straps are, so if you want to increase the resistance to increase the intensity of the exercise then this is the step that you will need to take.

Placement

You should make sure that the foam pad is aligned with your foot, rather than your heel or toes. This means that it is more secure, and is less likely to move while you are exercising.

How to prevent injuries when using stretch bands in ballet dance

Shoulder injuries

To avoid injuring your shoulder, you should make sure that the foam pad is on the opposite shoulder to the foot that you are using during the exercise. This can help with your balance, and also helps you to avoid suffering an injury.

Ankle injuries

When using the flexistretcher, you should never use it around your ankle – instead you should always make sure that it is placed around the middle of your foot to avoid injuring your ankle.

Neck injuries

While you’re using the flexistretcher, you should never place it around your neck at any time, as the pressure could cause injury.
