Hi everyone, I didn't want to put this up as I've seen a lot of them, but I'm really struggling to create a good stretch plan for what I want. I've read a lot so far and found helpful. I've read up a lot but somethings seem to make little sense to me and I just want a black and white stretch guide. I've been reading up here but again, I'm unsure of what to do to achieve my goal.

I want to be able to kick high, but keep my foot there for another kick. I can already kick fairly high but lack the strength to keep it there.

I also lack a partner to do PNF as much as I'd like to so I'd like an alternative.

Many thanks

Every time this subject comes up, I think about the Pilates reformer. Unfortunately, Pilates studio time is expensive. Even a home reformer costs thousands. And yet, dancers who have to keep their legs in odd positions use this device for flexibility and strength. It couldn't hurt to look around for a studio that might have a holiday deal going.
Be nice, until it's time to not be nice.

Thanks for your reply, that machine looks medieval. I'm currently aiming to work on dynamic leg swings, with (type of stretching) contractions. Throughout the day I work my kicks and holding them at their heighest point
