Can too much leg stretching be dangerous?

by admin on February 12, 2010

I dont know what has come over me recently, but I have started to stretch my legs a lot. I have ended up doing it subconciously, like when im waiting for a video to load I might just randomly stand up and stretch my legs [You know, bending over with legs completely straight and touching the ground]. I have already become pretty flexible, and I reckon in about 2-3 weeks I will be able to hug my legs.

What I am worried about is, what if this can be a health issue in the long term? Can stretching your legs too much affect your legs?

Mild stretching is ok and is good for the muscles as it keeps them loose(not too lose of course) but if you over stretch them you will get alot of muscle cramps.Doing it mildly its alright but each time you catch yourself over stretching it than correct it.

Thats the reason why your so flexible. To an extent its good but as i said don’t overdo it.
