Wow!! Your walk looks great. Is this because we are now in 2018? I’ve been reading tons of diaries & it seems that a long time ago Betz would run into lots of issues

First post btw

Almost there man! Dont worry the wide legs will disappear after lengthening. Good stretching and physio will help.

Hi tallertree,

Sour lengthening looks very good, congratulations!

What is the best stretching to prevent/cure wide legs?

Thanks all :)

To prevent widelegs you need to stretch your it-band.

I usually do this one:

Hoi tallertree,

I assume you have the Betzbone... having a weight bearing nail, what is the challange when walking? Is your walking limited because you feel pain when stepping on the floor?

Thanks!

Yes its the Betzbone. Challenge when walking depends on how much you stretch your muscles. For me the only challenge is the widelegs, but its getting better.

I understand walking depends on stretching the soft tissue...

so you feel no pain when stepping on the ground, e.g while walking?

I have now reached 7cm

The last two weeks i have intensified the stretching and i now do it about 3 times everyday. Still no duckass but my widelegs are still present. Im sure it will go away shortly after i finnish my clicks because when i did 10clicks per day my widelegs was not as bad. Now im doing 13 clicks per day and its still not so bad but a little bit more than when i did 10 clicks.

Did more stretching help your wide legs, or is there any benefit?

Also, I (and for sure the whole community) would love to see an update of your walking with those loooong legs  ;D

Thanks my friend

I have now reached 8cm and im doing very good. I stopped taking painkillers about one month ago. My widelegs are not as wide anymore, although its still present. I will keep lengthening a few more days, and maybe stop at 8,5cm. I might go up to 9cm, not sure yet.

Good going! Post a walking video if you can!
Walking while lengthening is quite surreal to imagine. It's sad that nothing came close to the old generation nails until Stryde now (this late).

tallertree has already posted some walking-videos. Truly amazing... especially if the wide legs are now at 8cm less than at 5cm

What diameter nail are you having? At 162cm I would imagine you have thin bones? You also seem on the skinny side..

Hi tallertree,
I am following your journey very interested...

Based on your experience, would you say one can maintain his studies at university during lengthening?

Thanks
