Introduction: How to Get a Lower Split

Step 1: Stretching

Go into a lunge and hold it for 1 minute

Step 2:

Do this ^^ up there^^ for 1-2 mins.

Step 3:

Do split but with one foot tucked in if that makes sense. Hold for 2-3 minutes

Step 4: Sliding

Grab two books that are slippery on the floor.

Step 5:

Start sliding as low as you can go

Step 6: For Advanced

Over split: grab a stool or anything and put your foot on it and go into your split (I fell in the last one lol)

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

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 :-)
