When stretching for the splits, how much should you feel it during the stretch?

Should it be like mild discomfort, slight pain, really hurting…Just how much should it hurt?
Thanks~

Normally, slight pain. You want to be stretching enough so that you’re actually improving your flexibility, but you also don’t want to be stretching to the point of over-stretching. If you are severely uncomfortable or in great pain, tone it down a bit. It’s all about finding a good balance!
Good Luck!
