    but one thing your knee is suppose to be under not sideways :-)

    boys are capable of doing the splits, they just have to work towards it just like girls

    I used do do splits when I was in karate but my mom took me out so it has been a while since I have done a spit but thanks to you I can do them again

    There should be a warning for this Instructable, "For Females ONLY"!

    I'm a dude and did ballet for 6 years (I was new to the country and "gender norms" were a foreign concept...). So no, not entirely...

    Then, I got lazy, discovered video games, and turned into a couch potato... These days, this hurts just looking at it.

    Holy crap. I'd break if I tried that. You're something else, YL. I wish I was as limber as a pipe cleaner :-)
