The ability to do splits is really easy for individuals who are very flexible. In fact, almost anyone can make feet come apart! What other people don’t know about this exercise is that it requires more than just strength and flexibility.
Here you will learn what is that one thing you need to work hard and discover how it can help in the skill you like mastering.
How to Learn Splits
Work it hard.
A series of different stretches is a great way to learn splits. You may start from a simple range to advance. No matter how tight your body can be, you’ll still be able to do a split if you work hard at stretching.
There are easier stretches for beginners. There are also full split ones for people with a bit more experience. Train your neurological system so you can relax your muscles. If you can do that, you are close to doing a split.
TIPS: In your stretching exercises, make sure to do each stretch on both right and left leg. This will help you learn a good split and be a great gymnast.
