    Stupid Splits!

    Okay, so somewhere online it said that you could get your split almost all the way down if, for a month or a little more, you went in your split for 2 minutes. And that seemed reasonable, even though I was 5 inches from the ground; I figured I could get to at least 2 inches off the ground. So I...

    DD's gym has decided that they must have all 3 of their splits prior to competing the next level. I realize everyone has different flexibility, but they want the girls to have these splits on the boards. I think this means 2 spring boards pushed together. Is this safe? My DD has 2 of the 3 I...

    Splits advice needed!

    I really want to get my splits as quick as possible. I am about a foot off the ground for both front splits and 2 feet off the ground for the side splits. Pretty bad I know. Please post any advice you have on getting your splits, any kind. Thanks!

    Splits tips

    Hey people! Merry not-yet-christmas everyone! So I was doing splits the other day and my coach said they were fine! Fine! I'm so happy! I always have been the-one-can't-do-splits and now they're fine! :p Since I heard this, i feel more confidant and flexible all the time. But now, I want to get...

    curious about the correlation between centre splits and frog splits

    I've noticed that my elder DD can't do frog splits (with knees bent) even though she can do centre splits all the way (not oversplits though). My younger DD's knees are flat on the floor in frog splits even though she can't do centre splits (well I don't think she can based on when she does...

    How do you get your splits all the way down? I am not all the way down, but I do over splits sometimes, I hold my arms up for the last 10 seconds, and if I tick off my coach, I get pushed down lol. Anyways, any tips for me you have? I need my splits all the way down before our season starts or I...

    Hey Guys- I need serious help! I have never been flexible and never had any of my splits down. Im really close to my left side and have been stretching for the past few weeks almost every day, but i haven't been seeing much progress besides sore muscles :(. my coaches, teammates, parents are...

    I'm so close to my splits!

    Hey Guys! I'm really excited!! I'm only 4 1/2 inches away from my splits (with my left leg in front) my other side is a little weaker (7 inches to go). It doesn't feel like that long ago that I wasn't even close to my splits. A quick question as well. I stretch both legs individually and...

    Compulsory floor routine deduction splits

    What is the deduction if the gymnast when doing the splits in L4-6 floor routines, touches her hand down on the ground when it shouldn't be? For example, my daughter's most recent meet, she said she touched so she wouldn't fall over. Is that a fall? Just wondering because floor is her hardest...

    How many ways can you do the splits? And can you do oversplits? I just wondered because everyone here seems to be better than me at gymnastics, I wondered if I could beat anyone at flexibility! Haha!

    what are the odds on developing good splits from nowhere

    Question to all, but I guess especially the coaches. My DD could almost do splits when she was 3, but now at 5 apparently she's much further off. I kind of assumed she had a reasonable natural flexibility, but since neither I nor her kindergym ever gets her to try splits it's only recently I've...
