07-08-2009, 07:15 PM
anyone else interested in rhythmic gymnastics or contortion?.. when i get down to a decent weight, i want to start training... nothing serious, of course.. just a hobby, like yoga or martial arts (which i also want to get into when i am able to) :)
i thought this lady was pretty neat (http://www.contortionhomepage.com/charis.html). (she's a contortionist)
and here's some rhythmic gymnastics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Viu7U8_IhD4). :)

I hear that contortionism takes a long time to train if you aren't naturally double-jointed.
That stuff is really cool, though.

:D i used to do stuff like that when i was a kid, i just got fat and stiff. it'd scare the heck out of my mom when i would do that kinda stuff LOL i'm not double jointed.. i took gymnastics briefly when i was little, but felt out of place, because i was bigger than the other girls & they let me know it. lol now i don't really care what anyone thinks, i'll be fat and old (25/26) when i start, but i don't care. i just want to lose some weight, so i don't look like a complete fool & break something when i start to learn! lol but i mean.. when i was a kid, i used to be able to bend over backwards and walk like a spider, put my feet behind my head, dangle from bars upside down with my head between my legs.. all kinda weird stuff. :) i don't believe you have to be double jointed to begin contortion, all it is, is limbering up your bones and ligaments, so you're like a wet noodle (lol).. i think if you're that flexible, you must feel amazing in your own skin! being so limber and able to do all kinds of neat stuff! :) it'd be awesome. :)
