My daughter competes in JO6, she is so good in my eyes! She can land a back handspring on beam and back layouts and front on floor. Her problem is flexibility. She is short and muscley, she does pretty good, usually places about 7..8th in competitions but wants the gold obviously! Her problem is she cant extend her back leg without a bend in it. Shes been training for years and it feels like it's just never going to happen. The girls that beat her are just naturally flexible. She works so hard but this just does not come naturally to her! Any suggestions on improving the flexibility of an advanced gymnast?????
