Developpe Content

Posted by EasyFlexibility Team on

Does your leg feel heavy while doing a Developpe?
Would you like to know how to solve this?
Then take a look at the ZST technique called Content.

The EasyFlexibility ZST is performed in two steps which repeat for a few reps: first extend your leg as if you were kicking up with your heel, allowing a very light stretch, and as you come back to the starting position bring your leg closer to your torso. You will notice that this actually comes naturally, and that you can get deeper and deeper with every rep.
Remember to do both sides and start slow listening to your body!

It's an exercise from the EasyFlexibility method which targets the muscles responsible for this issue: the semimembranosus and semitendinosus muscles, better known as Inner Hamstrings.

These muscles are situated on the back of the thigh, extending from the tuberosity of the ischium down just below the knee joint, on the medial aspect of the posterior surface.
Since they are big muscles, they are usually what people have the most trouble with, and they require a specialized approach.
Developpe A La Seconde is a ballet technique in extending the leg to the side.

Strength, balance, control, awareness and of course flexibility are factors needed to extend the leg high, with grace. At the same time full control of the movement and holding the leg vertical is what all ballet dancers strive for.
A standard way to work the Developpe to forward, to the side or back into the Arabesque is through bar and partner flexibility drills. Practicing the technique over and over is often prescribed.
Most dancers improve Developpe A La Seconde using those, over long period of time. Our approach is different. Our program develops very specific flexibility using kinesiological stretching techniques.
At the same time the crucial short range contraction and awareness of which muscles do the work is build through reciprocal inhibition. This develops the skill much faster and safer than traditional stretch and do over method.

Developpe routine contains four steps. Each step allows the body to progress quickly in manageble increments, till full Developpe is mastered.
