leg stretching machine is it worth it?

by admin on September 29, 2010

I’ve been looking into leg stretching machines for a while. I do Taekwondo and was hoping it could help with my flexibility, however considering how much they are I wonder if they are worth the investment.

Has anyone tried them? What were your results?

I have one handed down to me from my dad, it’s a side splits one, made by century. I used it a couple of times, and it’s pretty cool, but serves the same purpose as training side splits on the ground or on a wall. The best thing about the machine is it tells you the degree of your split, and it applies pressure to your inner thighs instead of on your feet like it you were using a wall. I stopped using it because it’s heavy and cumbersome to set up for only one stretch. I’ve had great results practicing side splits without the machine.
