A few tips and notes

  • This is better to do after light strengthening or a barre.  You do not need to be completely warm because we begin to with some strengthening in the beginning, but it’s good to follow after a barre because of the stretching involved.
  • High extensions require flexibility in all areas.  You can improve your general flexibility by checking out my Stretching Workout and Flexibility Guide.
  • The more you do this workout, the better your extensions will be.  Things improve with practice and hard work!
