I only need to read the headline to know it isn't safe. It took me 4 years to get my splits, and I will never be able to do a straddle. There are no shortcuts for stretching. You need to understand how stretching works - stretching is the intentional injuring of your muscles, which causes pain & inflammation and requires healing time between stretches. Anyone who tells you to stretch every day doesn't understand anatomy. Once you understand the physiology, you need to develop a SENSIBLE stretching plan. Then just stick to it. But anyone who tries to force a time-table on your stretching plan (ESPECIALLY 3 WEEKS!!!) is going to cause injury. There is A LOT of terrible advice in this thread.
