For some people a split is very easy, but for others it can be a challenge. Have you ever seen a ballerina that so flexible and you want to do that too? It's not impossible to be able to do it. I am giving you some tips to do the split easy and fast. With some patience and motivation you will get there!
1. The first thing you have to do is to choose comfortable clothes where you can move easily in. This is very important, because when you wear tight clothes like skinny jeans you can't strech well. You can wear a legging with a top or tshirt.
2. Than do a warmup. This is also very important before you start doing the splits. Because if you muscles are not warmed up yet, you'll have a higher risk of getting injuries. And you can strech deeper. For the warmup you can jog in place, do some jumping jacks. Just try to keep moving. You should do this for around 5 minutes.
3. When your muscles are warmed up the stretching can begin. Try to save at least 10-15 minutes everyday to practise for the split. Otherwise if you only do it a few minutes it's not so helpful. Good excercices are:
*Sit on the ground with your legs together straight in front of you. Reach you legs towards your toes. Keep your back straight. Try to being you chest everytime a little closer to your legs. If you find it difficult you can bend you knees a little.
*Sit with you legs spread far from each other apart. Try to reach with your hand your legs. One leg at a time. Try to reach your feet and keep your back straight. Hold each strech for about 30 seconds.
4. Know when to stop. Really stop with stretching when something hurts. Don't go further because this can lead to serous injuries. And your goal of being able to do the splits isn't reachable anymore.
Remember that practice makes perfect!
