In order to go any further with testing I need to be able to do a sit spin. But apart from other problems it looks I simply don't have enough strength in my thighs and I usually end up with somehow forcing my knee joint doing the work, which certainly isn't a good thing. I need to add that spinning in general isn't my strong point. I tried to practice the sit spin position in swimming pools and had absolutely no problem there - probably due to the fact that with less weight you need less strength. (However I stopped that, when someone in my surrounding mentioned that staying in a stable position similar to a crouch might look like if I were peeing in the pool. ) Does anyone have tips for off-ice exercises to get more strength in my thighs? (Sidenote: as I like to wear skirts the exercises should not result in Schwarzenegger style legs!) - Thanks in advance!
