Yeh, you're right about it toning the body.
I remember when I had to do intensive body building when I used to row competitively. You'd have these idiots doing exercises willy nilly and you can see how they're damaging their spine, their neck. A lot don't even stretch properly after. I had a trainer who was so strict on stretching. I'm glad I listened to him. I wouldn't want to look like the hunchback of Notredame
You can see hunchbacks evolving these curious bodyshapes at Cam. They start off as regular looking freshers, start rowing and come out with a degree and a hunchback!

Well you won't get any "hunchbacks" or "monkey shoulders" as long as you stretch properly.

rowing is ok. I've been rowing since I was 15. But too much weight training without a proper training program is dangerous. I think it's something to do with shortening your muscles.

LOL!....
I remember there was a girl in our lower grade....she was soooooo flexible...I mean she was like a rag doll and could turn her back and neck and legs in any direction!...it was scary!!!!:shocked:
me, I can't even sit on my knees for too long without getting them cramped and stiff!
It must be your boyfriend who's disappointed about your lack of flexibility..

'intensive' bodybuilding, lol

Why do you need to stretch for bodybuilding?
It's a personal choice. What happens when you don't stretch, is that you're shortening your muscles. At least that's what my trainer told me. It's a personal choice. But if you get back problems at 40, you'll probably know why. Weight training creates huge tensions that you should relieve through stretching.

As I already have back problems, I'm pretty careful with all this stuff.

Thanks for taking the piss about my intensive bodybuilding. When you've been twice to the national rowing championships, you have to.

A nice little trick:

1. Extend your arm out in front of you (palms and elbows facing outwards)
2. One hand over the other - interlink your hands
3. Push your hands down, your elbows out, and rotate 180 degrees (keep your hands interlocked)
4. In the final position, your arms are still extended, hand are still interlocked, but your elbows should point roughly downwards.

If you are under 21-ish you should be able to do that with no problems. Now ask your mums and dads to try it

P.S. If you can't do it, don't force it! :eek: Don't try it if you have any joint or any other problems with your arms that limit mobility or flexibility.

I actually can get one foot at a time pretty much right up behind my head (although I'm sure I look a little scary when doing so) Purely from years of doing yoga though, if I stop yoga for a while my flexibility decreases.
