Answer #1

Hey. It take a lot of time to start doing the splits, and some people can never do it. so good luck. The stretches you need to do are pretty basic.

  • Both legs out in front of you, One led to side on the right then left, Both legs out and touch your toes, reachinf futher each time -sit on your knees and stick one leg out at a time and lean forward, try touch you head to your knee
  • put your leg up on the back of a chair or bar and reach your body over try touch you head to your knees or touch your toes

you can probably re-search these on the internet aswell.

and if possible to help your flexibility you can join a dance class, or do pilates, yoga etc

hope this helps :)
