Gymnastics : How to Do a Heel Stretch


Hi, my name is Caroline and I’m here at Encore
Gymnastics with Amanda. Today we’re going to teach you how to do a heel stretch. Before
you do a heel stretch, it’s very important that you do a lot of stretching, ’cause this
does take a lot of flexibility. Amanda’s going to show you how to do a stretch that we do
when we stretch our splits. Put your knee out and foot out a little farther. Bend. So
she’s pushing through here to stretch this back leg. Then she’s going to make this leg
straight. Put her hands down by the ground, try to get her head close to her knee to stretch
the underpart of this leg. This is the leg she’s going to be doing the heel stretch with.
Then she’s going to stay in that position. I’m going to come behind her, and she’s going
to grab my legs. I’m going to grab her leg, and pull it up to simulate the heel stretch.
Come on down, and, she’s going to switch to a position like this. And put that leg out
to the side. She’s going to get her good stretch through here. Very good. When she goes to
do the heel stretch, go ahead and stand up, I’m going to stand behind her to help her
with her balance. She’s going to pull her leg up to posse, grab her heel, and pull it
out to the side, using her other arm to balance. That’s how to do a heel stretch.

  1. @karinag217 I think why they used her is to show that she was a good examle of who needs hlp like the people watching this video.She does't know how to do it right.It wouldn't of made much sense to use somebody that alread knows how.It helped me though. πŸ™‚

  2. Uhhh, just a thought, it might be a good idea to select someone who is flexable and coordinated to demonstrate next time. Just saying.

  3. i hate amanda she always smiles after she demonstrates or done something!!!it getting on my nerves!!!! that bitchy show off and i dont give no fucking shit if you saw this comment AMANDA!!!

  4. replay from the very beginning and look at amanda in the first couple seconds
    shes distacted and then realizes the camera is going and puts on a huge smile
    LOL :]

  5. @watyonameisgurl why in the hell do you care?
    and besides why would she smile or laugh after the stretch would you smile for no reason after you do something?

  6. Ok….don't stretch or learn how to do a heel stretch like that. You won't get flexible that way and she mentioned nothing about correct leg and back position.

  7. If your a cheerleader don't follow this because we do heel stretches differently than gymnastic people. But the stretches are good for heel stretch and splits:)

  8. to be normal is to be weird but to be weird is to be normal [mind spell] (clap in the person face and laugh in a spooky way also say you saw nothing) ha ha ha mwahh

  9. That's not a very good heel stretch, straighten your leg & get it higher up. Us cheerleaders can do it.

  10. you sound like you're just showing off.if you're so good you wouldn't be watching this video and wasting your time commenting.Js~

  11. we strech kinda like that but our teacher dose not come behind us like that and pull ourleg and we do have to do the half scrupion

  12. um, You don't stretch your heel. You can stretch your feet or arch. But you don't need it for this skill.

  13. Ur suppost to kick ur leg in the air and grab it, and ofc press it further up. And keep in mind that heel streches are suppost to be in front of you, not to the side πŸ˜‰

  14. Did u see Amanda at the beginning, she wasn't ready lol.I don't know why she has to be perfectly still
