Sometimes, it seems like only yesterday since I started taking acrobatics seriously – actually it is over 17 years now – and, along with my colleagues, we are definitely not maintaining the flexibility we once had. ‘Too much weight training’, some might say, but then we need strength for the so-called ‘power moves’ which feature in our balances and so forth – and, of course, we all want to look good in public since our ‘trade’ (haha) means we almost always work shirtless and barefoot, and usually just with briefs.
Today’s post is therefore a celebration of flexibility, featuring ballet boys and young gymnasts, in no particular order. Some are quite skinny to look at, but their bodies can thrill us in other ways. Enjoy!
Something for us all to aspire to in that collection, I think! More about us and what we do can be found here:
