stretches for middle split

Comments · 165 Views

Basically you should start with identifying your weak spots that prevent you from doing side/middle split, usually it’s hamstrings or calves.

Repetition is also a must to improve, stretching once a week wont take you far, try to add it to your practice 2–3 a week to see improv

Learning any skill is challenging without help; my go-to suggestion is always the same; Seek professional help.

Getting into full middle splits is pretty extreme (unless you’re a dancer, gymnast or figure skater etc. who has mastered this skill at a very young age) … but it is not impossible.

Join a martial arts class or yoga/stretch class …or work with a professional one-on-one to learn some basic stretches to help you become more flexible. After mastering these, you are probably safe to embark on your journey to “full middle splits.”

Please avoid “hurrying” the process. While some people can accomplish full splits within weeks, others (like me) will work on mastering this skill for a lifetime. While I once could get pretty close to the floor, I NEVER looked like the gymnasts or martial arts experts whose bone structure allow greater movement and flexibility.

We tend to gravitate toward physical endeavours/activities that suit us. “Looking” and moving like a gymnast was never my gift.
