I want to become more flexible, and be able to do the splits. Do you guys know any ideas, advice, or stretches that will help me achieve my goal?:)
Hey me too. I have given myself a 4 month goal to become more flexible! Let me know what you are doing.
Stretch every time you can. When you at home watching TV.
There is no magic to it, just a lot of labour.
Lunges and Reverse Lunges work well! Hold each for three minutes, right when you get up, and before bed. And you can stretch throughout the day if you'd like. But you don't have to. It just speeds up the process a bit. So I'd say 3-31/2 weeks with stretching throughout the day. And maybe 4 or 5 weeks without. It's all about being consistent with it. Don't give up. :)
Hey well I'm a cheerleader so this is what I suggest haha.
You MUST warm up before streching, like running/cardio is good. Many people make the misstake and bend their backs while streching.. Don't do that haha. Then all bodies are diffrent so go search and try all stuff and see what works out best! I started streching 3-4 times a week, but then add up. Hope this was helpfull haha
Proper warm ups. Pulling muscles is no funn.
