Blair, I hadn't seen that one before; thanks. I definitely feel a whole lot more from that one that I do with pancake stretches (even when I'm going deep into it).

The way you phrased that makes me wonder why I never try to train the split lowering down into it. I always sit down on the floor then push myself into it. Is one way or the other preferable for this?

I haven't yet gotten to a point where I feel any impingements, even if I lower down into it. I get about 18" from the floor before having to drop out of the movement.
And yes, I'm actually holding that handstand. Get on my level.
