Out of interest...
 
is there any interest in learning the front split, cause I teached it myself - again - in the last 12 weeks or so. only 5 cm to go and it is comfy?

If at least three members would like to know - the how I did it - I will write something up!

As far as I can tell there is one ingredient I have never heard before... :D

I am interested.

I have been pursuing a side and front split for a while now, and while I am making progress, 12 weeks would be great!

I'm interested Peter. You're contributing a gold mine to this board with the Smolov write up and possibly this.

Yeah, I'd be interested in reading it. I've been trying to get my hip flexors to open up and making small but precious progress. I figure a front split would really open those suckers up.

Ok!

Rick Deckart 10-04-2010 10:13 AM

It will take a couple of days... too busy currently

Rick Deckart 10-05-2010 08:48 PM

Rick Deckart 10-05-2010 08:49 PM

Does it require alot of walking to develop a front split? :confused:

I suppose I could start hanging out at the Y walking on the treadmills with all the soccer moms. I'm sure there are a few divorcees there :cool:

"Secret" to splits:
1. Watch Bloodsport as an impressionable teenager and become fascinated with Van Damme's chair splits.
2. Enroll in local karate dojo.
3. Spend a lot of time stretching
3a. Including the old side splits machine.
4. Do side splits and front splits (both sides) after 3-4 months.

That's what I did. There's no magic.
