I want to do splits, maybe further than 180 degrees, probably 210 or more. I am thirteen and I can barely do the three most basic splits. Does anyone know how to be more flexible really fast?
By the way, I am all alone. No partners. Probably can't find one here as I'm in a small city in China :-)
All I can use is furnitures and cushions and quilts. I can endure great pains.

I'm a dancer. It took me a while to do the splits. Stretching and holding is the best way. Everyday stretch. Push yourself or even have others help u (like push u farther in the splits) . But make sure you stay safe. There is a difference between being uncomfortable and being in pain. You don't want pain or you will injure yourself. Look on the Internet for some good stretches, I've found some great ones. Hope this helps!

Pretty much that is what I did too. I am a dancer too. So instead of repeating it again I second that lol :-)
