Improving our flexibility brings us great benefits such as having greater agility in the body to carry out daily activities. Do not miss our routine to achieve the split safely.
The front split has become popular on social media. More and more people want to achieve it. However, before starting to do it, you have to take into account a series of aspects so as not to suffer injuries.
What is the split?
It consists of opening the legs in such a way that they are aligned with each other. In addition, both remain fully extended forming an angle of 180º. This posture can be done by anyone who is agile and who is willing to be patient and perseverance to achieve it.
Exercise routine to get the split
To achieve the split, you must first perform an exercise routine that will help you improve flexibility. Later, you can try it progressively. These are the exercises we recommend to achieve your goal. Don't forget to take note!:
It is essential that you do not underestimate the warm-up, otherwise you could suffer some type of injury.
You can do a few minutes on a stationary bike, go for a walk, do mobility exercises or do some yoga.
Sit with the soles of your feet together. Gently push your knees toward the floor. You shouldn't feel pain. Hold the position for a few minutes, rest, and do it again.
We recommend doing between three and four repetitions.
In this case, stand up. Bring your right leg forward and flex your front knee while stretching the back knee. Rest your hands on the floor as you gently push.
Try to hold this stretch for one minute and do about three repetitions on each leg.
Lie on your stomach, bend your knees and put your feet together. Support yourself on your forearms. You should try to get both your feet and hips as close to the ground as possible. Hold the position for a few minutes and do three sets.
uve on wall
Select a wall where there are no objects that could limit movement. Lie on your back, keep your legs together and feet pointing toward the ceiling. Begin to open your legs and let them fall under their own weight. Relax the body.
Surely over time you notice that the legs are lowering more and more.
