Is it normal to have a hip so closed that one can barely do an inside spread eagle?
My turn out is probably 100-110 degrees. No matter how much I stretched, I couldn't get any further than that. Now, there's this person I met online who claims he has closed hips and has been giving me advice on how to manage skating with closed hips, apparently is able to do an inside spread eagle. I was confused at that, this means his hips are NOT entirely closed as mine is. So I thought, are my hips abnormal?
When I try to do an inside spread eagle, the circle is very VERY small that I can't even manage to hold the spread eagle because I would appear as if I'm spinning and I'm going really fast.
So, my question is, are my hips unusually too closed?
