Try doing the center splits to the wall instead of the floor. It's easier on the knees.

Thank whoever taught it to you, it's great. I did it with a friend and I feel really loose ever since. Splits are so much easier and I can hold them now without too much pain! But yes, make sure you know your limits, everyone, don't hurt yourself. But good luck! Thanks heaps for that, it's soooo good. If you learn any more let us all know...

Yeah that is truly a great stretch.What most people don't realise is that you must somewhere in your head give in to the movement.then your reaction won't be to tense up as you feel something!

I think I am going to try that stretch!! It sounds really painful!! but I think thats I can do it if I really try!!:):D:D!!!! Another good stretch would be if you put your legs against the wall and you push youself as far a you can go.... hold it for as long as you can and then try and push yourself in a little more and you keep trying it!!!!! It will help you improve with your strattle spilits!!!:D:D:D
thanks!!
and i really want to try that!!!!
i hope it works!!!!
Thnaks for posting!!
byeeee

Thqanx u so much for this advise. I've been doing this same exercise but alone, holding my own leg. I never thought of having someone apply pressure before.

Thanks again now I'll definatly try it.

For some reason, this didn't help me. Maybe I need a better partner, my little sister wasn't too keen on helping me.

I love this stretch! it helps me a lot and helps improve splits incredibly i have never tried it the partner version. I do it by myself pushing my leg closer i think it is better by yourself because you know how far you can go! this is an amzaing stretch!

That sounds like a really good stretch, but I can already imagine the pain. But you know what? I agree, improvement in stretching requires pain. I'm going to have my sister help with this one. Thanks for the advice, it was just what I was looking for.

This is an awesome stretch and it will imcrease flexibility dramatically but there are some things you should mention.

This is PNF stretching or proprioceptive neuromuscular stretching. It must be done only when fully warm, no more than once every three days and only by those who are 16 and above. This is because it can seriously damage bone structure and ligaments if your body is still growing. Doin it with a teacher is always a good idea!

Aside from this, it is a really great stretch that us older dancers and use so thanks for putting it out there!!
