When practicing yoga, why can we split but not cross?

When practicing yoga, many Gya people may have such an experience: they feel that they can complete the split very easily

.

Others and themselves feel that the hip joint is still relatively flexible, but the cross fork can’t go down all the time

.

I don’t know why? In fact, yoga split and horizontal fork seem to be the same hip opening movement, but in fact they are two completely different postures, and the requirements for hip joint are also completely different

.

They have the following two major differences: 1

.

Vertical fork and horizontal fork, the movement direction of the hip joint is different

.

Practicing yoga, people who know about anatomy all know that the hip joint has six major movement directions: flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, external rotation and internal rotation´╝ł Horizontal adduction, horizontal abduction and circular rotation are relatively less used) if the pelvis is fixed, the motion direction of the hip joint is mainly flexion and extension, while the motion direction of the transverse hip joint is mainly abduction and external rotation

.

Therefore, to complete the Yoga vertical fork, the hip flexion and extension ability needs to be better, and to complete the Yoga horizontal fork, the hip joint needs to be more powerful abduction and external rotation ability

.

.

To complete the vertical fork and horizontal fork, the main muscle tissues involved are different

.

To complete the vertical fork, the elasticity requirements of the front thigh muscle group, iliopsoas muscle group, gluteus muscle group, hamstring muscle group and calf muscle group are relatively high

.

To complete the horizontal fork, the elasticity requirements of the adductor muscle group are relatively high

.

Therefore, even if many people can complete Yoga vertical fork very well, if the abduction and external rotation ability of hip joint is not enough, the elasticity of adductor muscle group is not enough, and the Yoga horizontal fork can not be opened, it is very normal

.

So, today I also share two sets of Yoga sequences, one for the vertical fork monkey and the other for the horizontal fork! Before practicing these two sets of sequences, it is recommended to add 3-5 times of Sunday warm-up! A set of get Yoga split Yoga sequence 1
