  • Flexibility Challenge Problem

    I always had problems with my flexibility, because I didn't do sports for a long time. At the beginning it was so bad, that i couldn't even do some exercises(squats for example). It has gotton better so far, but I still want to become more flexible, so I began the felxibility challenge on darebee. I am 7 days in it now and since the bginning I had a problem with my knees. So when I do the split a tendon or something like that goes over my knee(?) on the inside. It feels really weird and when I held it for the 55 seconds it hurts for mabye 10 more seconds. The more often I do it the more it hurts afterwards. Slowly I am beginning to think i'll get injured if I dont stop or fix it. There are a lot of peple having problems with their knees in my family.

    Does someon know what it is and how to fix it or if I should go see a doctor?


    Thank you in advance

    If it feels tight or pulling when you do the splits it could just be the muscle or the tendon stretching out, cause it's tight. I mean when you stretch your supposed to feel the stretch and pull of the muscles. When I do the splits I get the stretch and burn mostly in my inside of my thighs. Also have you used a chair for stability so you don't go down farther than your comfortable with? Just some thoughts.

      I don't know if it is a tendon exactly, it is just one (or mabye more) relatively thin strings that slide into an awkward position when i am at a certain angle... i can feel the muscle stretch, and there is nothing wrong with the muscle i think

        Well then I suggest going to the doctor then since your not really sure what the problem is.

            I went to see a doctor, so if anyone else has the same "problem", she said that the tendon is actually always supposed to be where it slips, when I do it, and I should just keep on stretching, it'll eventually be gone and the tendon will be in the right place
