I’m practicing standing splits just as a personal goal after every workout. It also stretches out my hammies. I want to be able to do it without hands one day! Last week my leg was still bent but today for the first time in my life I could lift my leg nearly straight! I surprised myself and it felt pretty cool! Just remember…if you want something and you want it real bad, you’ll figure out a way to make it happen. Every bit of practice counts. Keep trying. You’ll get there one day.
