  2、 Warm up before practicing split 1 stretching safely and effectively.

It is very important to warm up correctly before doing split.

Warming up helps you prevent muscle strain and can also help you strengthen stretching.

Any warm-up is OK, just let the blood flow all over the body – try jumping up and down for 5-10 minutes, running around bricks or dancing to music.

  2 practice 15 minutes a day, twice a day.

If you want to split in a week or less, you must make your own practice plan.

Practice twice a day, don’t give up, about 15 minutes each time.

It would be better if you could practice three times (don’t force yourself too much).

During practice, you can listen to music, watch TV and so on.

Friends can help you pull deeper and press your shoulders or legs.

Make sure they stop when you stop them.

You need to trust them completely.

You can also try to compete with your friends to see who completes the split first, which can have an incentive effect.

  4 wear the right clothes.

Wearing the right clothes will make you feel more comfortable and flexible, and can also prevent you from tearing your clothes during practice.

Wear comfortable sportswear, tight or loose.

You can wear socks when practicing, because socks can be more slippery on the ground and let you stretch more.

  Knowing your limit is a difficult task to achieve split style in a week or less, so it’s very important not to force yourself.

Your safety is the most important.

If you get hurt, you have to slow yourself down.

When you get up in the morning, stretch gently and do the necessary warm-up.

If you’ve already started practicing splitting, you need to feel a comfortable and strong stretch of your muscles, but you don’t feel pain.

If it hurts, it means you’re forcing yourself too much.

Forcing yourself too hard will lead to muscle tension and injury, which will make it difficult for you to split.

Remember, take your time, safety first.

  3、 Slowly come to split 1 come to split after stretching, you need to spend more time actually practicing split.

First, come to the split: if you do a vertical split, hit the ground on your knees, move your front legs forward, and the weight is on your heels.

Keep your back knees bent and your calves on the ground.

If it’s a cross cut, stand straight, then open your legs outward, with your toes and knees facing the sky.

  2 slow yourself down.

When you are ready, slowly come to the split pose.

Support your weight with both hands and put it down slowly.

If you chop vertically, hold your hands on both sides of your front legs.

If it’s a cross cut, hold your hands on the ground in front, a little narrower than your shoulders.

Most of the weight is in the hands, and the legs open more until the legs are 180 °.

  Relax your muscles.

If you have trouble down, take a deep breath and consciously relax your muscles.

Research shows that relaxation can increase flexibility.

In addition, when stretching, muscles are more likely to be injured if they are tense.

  4 hold the split for 30 seconds.

Once you have finished the split, try to hold for 30 seconds.

You should feel a deep stretch without pain.

If it hurts to keep stretching, come out immediately and continue the stretching sequence mentioned above.
