Cant help but notice that rhythmic gymnasts are amazing at leg spins

Im managing too, they dont look so easy as the rhythmic gymnasts do

Any tips?

Rhythmic Gymnasts train extremely hard in both stretching and strengthening.
It is easy to do leg spins if you have an oversplit, so the leg isnt being stretched in the spin.
Try using ankle weights they work wonders!

you also have to remember that rgymnasts have been training everyday since they were REALLY little (most international rgymnasts start when they are about 3). its not impossible, but you wouldnt get a held (or even unheld!) pivot [thats what its called] like them in a short amount of time.
