If you've always wanted to do a split, you need flexible hips and hamstrings. Practice these stretches, and you'll soon be on your way.
Stretching like strengthening can be used for many goals. The schedule changes depending on what the target exercise are applied for. For an easier understanding let’s take a basic squat or a lunge. You can see 3 different people doing that exercise for different reason and of course with different, resistance, frequency and intensity.
• One person does the squat or lunge as a weight loss program.
• Another as a bulking technique. (Bodybuilder)
• Third to improve squat itself. (Powerlifter)
• Fourth as an athletic conditioning for legs. (Track athlete)
Splits seem to be one of the first things new dancers want to accomplish. Once you have your splits, new doors seem to open...obviously a flexible body gives a dancer a real edge. But if you study a picture of someone sitting in a perfect split, it almost looks impossible. How can the human body bend in such extreme ways?
Flexibility is determined by several factors: joint structure, ligaments, tendons, muscles, skin, tissue injury, fat tissue, body temperature, age and gender.
This application will help you to achieve the right, exact split.
