The Oversplit Leg Mount – Free PDF
One particular stretch that is has been popping up more and more on our Instagram and Facebook feeds that has us very, very worried, is the overspilt side mount. Young dance students are taking the leg past its natural range of motion, and often right behind their neck or upper back. We are concerned that the student, their parents or even their teachers do not fully understand the risks that are involved with repeatedly performing this particular move. I have seen more and more hip injuries related to this kind of over-stretching, and so I wanted to write an article explaining exactly what is going on in the hip joint, so that everyone has more information and can train more safely.
This PDF explains the dangers of the oversplit leg mount, hip anatomy and safer alternatives.
