I am pretty flexible, but oh my goodness! Ouch is all I can say. I can't even see how this is possible! She must have no bones. Hehe.

The girl being exercised is one of the most flexible Russian girls around!

Go to YouTube and type in Irina Kazakova (the girl's name) and you will see many outstanding clips of her performing.

Yes, she is very flexible but I still feel that active rather than passive stretching is better. I'm sure her trainer is very good however and can do it safely.

Wow...That hurts just to look at...And while I'm sure her trainer knows what she is doing, is it just me or does the girl does appear to be in pain?

The girl and trainer are very experienced and I do not agree that she is actually in pain. Yes, she is gritting her teeth because she wants to increase her flexibility but she is holding her body erect using the ladder and if it gets too much for her she can simply let go of the rung and get rid of the pressure.

I do not recommend letting anyone force stretch you - only a very experienced teacher/trainer should ever do this.

Oh my goodness.
Ouch. Wow. Ouch!
The leg she's exercising on appears to be longer than her supporting leg. Weird. o.O
But still very amazing!
and yet very painful to watch!

Um, is it just me, or does that look like a fake? Look at her top leg, someone already commented that her top leg looks to long, and she's right. It's coming out of a darkly lit area, and doesn't even look connected to her body. What are everyone else's thoughts on it?

^^ Maybe it's just the way she's stretching - like an optical illusion?

I agree with Ian though I don't think she's in 'bad' pain, it doesn't look like her trainer is putting much pressure on the leg to push it down, more just guiding it maybe.

*EDIT*

Ian, I checked her out on youtube - WOW!! Is she older now? I have to say the first one I watched she was in a silver catsuit thing, and I was horrified - she looked so thin and boney, but I'm guessing it's just because she's stretching so much. She actually looks really healthy and strong in the other videos I watched, glad to see it!

Wow. She looks so little and her legs look so strong and muscular. So people are just very expressive. I make faces when I stretch, but I'm not in any real pain. I'm sure her instructor knows what she is doing.

oh wow! I'm speechless and that doesn't happen often. I can only imagine how long it took for her to get this flexible. It looks painful.

She is a contortionist. Yes, the videos on youtube are quite freaky. But, they are so cool and amazing. Not many can do what she can do.

is her thigh bone bending? it looks like it is bending. But that would be really cool to be able to do something like that.

Ouch indeed! I'm glad to hear that this is no "regular" girl and training exercise.

Fake?

Get real! She is one of the amazing Russian performers - give credit where it is due, and it certainly is due here.
