How to get your Splits Down

one day at a time

Some Simple Steps
do daily

  • Perform light cardiovascular exercise for 5 to 10 minutes before stretching to prepare your muscles for activity.
  • Start by stretching out your legs in a pre straddle stretch for about a minute. Lean to each side 
  • Push over to your straddle split. Hold for a minute. Make sure you're leaning over to feel the strech
  • Then come down and do a pigeon stretch
  • Then a butterfly strech

If you do this every day and try to add 30 seconds more each day then you'll get stronger and more flexable.
