How to do the splits! Full stretch routine!

You asked for it! Here it is!

Just try to do this routine everyday and you will be able to do the splits eventually. Once I was doing a dance routine and I ended in the splits, but kinda went too fast into it and heard a loud POP as I bounced on the floor. It didn’t hurt at the moment but for about 1 year, I was not able to even lift my legs beyond a 90 degree angle when lying down. It was horrendous!

I stretched for about 10 min every night for a year and I was able to stretch myself to a full split again and I healed safely.

So yea, it takes time guys! Be patient but work hard!!

Also, workout calendar is coming out Friday August 31st!!!! Make sure to check your email for the newsletter with the password!!! You can sign up for the newsletter at the top right corner of the blog.

Love ya!

  • Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to
    get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Opera.

    Superb Blog!

    I used to dance in kindergarten and I was thinking about getting back into dance since I’ve just started doing my own little routines. I’ve lost all my flexibility before this video but not I’ve gotten a little more flexible. I’m not there yet but I’m heading and this will be great for me when I get back into dance. Thank you so much!!!

      hi i know you do not know me i am 9 i am close to doing the splits but evertime i keep going sideways i take gymnastic and really need some tips can you help by giving some tips

  • Pretty Girl 22

    I really want to learn to do the splits so I’m going to start doing this exercise twice a day. Do you think doing it that frequently is bad. Like if I do it in the morning when I wake up and then before I go to bed? Just want to know if I could possibly injure myself that way.

    • no you wouldn’t injure yourself just be careful on what stretches you put yourself into and how you time yourself

      PS: don’t push yourself to far on what ever stretches you are doing and don’t stay on a stretch longer than 2mins
      have fun on your splits

  • Nice, thanks for this. I am almost there with the splits, only need to stretch my hips a little further!
    But the way, the people in the video is very distracting. Perhaps next time find a quiet area.

  • Abcarterxx

    WEIRD, that exact same thing happened to me, I was in agony doing anything that involved stretching my leg but i rested it for two months as I was not allowed to go to dancing and it healed and I am now working to reach my splits again!!

      • CatLover994

        Dude, thats so uncool justin, you can do anything you put your mind to. Even if you’re a bit chubby.

    • lauren

      Actually yes you can, I’ve seen MANY heavier set people do splits :)

    • Nancy

      Weight doesn’t matter. Just do this and you’ll eventually do the splits! At least give it a shot! (:

      Definately. I’m also on the larger side and I learnt how to do it. I was motivated by Muzik by 4 minute while doing my stretches =D

    • Miley

      Sure why not? Haha I’m attending a musical school and one of my best friends is a little chubby and she does the splits like a profession. :)

    • probably im chubby to well a little

  • Phoebe

  • Molly Clarke

    This is a great way I started gymnastics about 1 year ago and they have been frustrated that they can never help me get down to the splits,I watched this video once and when you said let’s have a ago at going into the splits I went into them in a breath thank you so much!!!:)

  • Manuela Bremer

    I have a little problem and I was hoping if you could help me.
    If I worked out, than I’m all stiff the next day (and I do get a good warmup)
    So if I want to stretch the next day, I can’t do it optimal because I’m stiff.. Does the stretching work if I’m stiff and can’t get as far as the day before?

    • CatLover994

      yes you can stretching helps stiffness

  • Tishana

    Is this a good stretch to do for the clicking in my hips when I do leg circles?

    • Phoebe

      No no I didn’t mean to post that I’m so sorry

  • Mackenzie

    This is great! I already have a summer abs conditioning list for cheerleading, so it’s also great to have a set of stretches to get to the splits. Thank you so much! You’re very inspiring and you will make me determined to getting flexible. :)

  • Justin

    I couldn’t pay attention I need a guy doing it or else I get distracted.
    I’m a guy and doing this for my tricking and MMA.:)

  • Ana

    The best part of this was watching the reactions of the people as they walked by! :) I’ve been looking for a good stretch for the splits for a while, so I’m excited to try this out. I’ll be adding it to my beginner’s calendar. You’re really good at making me determined to work hard for this. I’m going to be so toned come band camp ^ ^
