by admin on December 3, 2009

I am close to getting a split (and then I will be working on my illusion lol) so does anyone know any good stretches to help me get closer to my goal? thanks!!

no rude answers please
i am a dancer by the way

Anything to make your muscles long and supple. One I like alot is to stand with your back against the wall and your heels touching the wall. Bend down and touch the floor, and then push one leg slowly up the wall. When it’s straight and pointed, you can turn it under or out and push your self against the wall. For a center split, find a stretch of wall and sit facing it in your split. push yourself farter, the wall will keep your legs turned out. Side splits are tricky, but the best idea is to sit in them every day, a few times a day, after you’ve stretched well and lean forward for a little while, and then lean back. you can also lay to the inside and push yourself flatter. I hope this helps! Good luck!
