Last summer, I decided that for the first time in my life, I would touch the ground without bending my legs. I did it. Since, I've decided to improve my flexibility and my goal for this summer is to be able to do a split. I'm about two feet from being able to do a split. It may seem like alot, but I pulled off last summers goal. However, I think that this goal may be a tad more difficult. While I've yet to hurt myself, what are some precautions that I need to be taking? Are there any guides out there that are a good read? My current stretch to reach my mark is twice a day, I get on my back against the wall, hold my legs up, and drop them in a split as far as they will go. I then let gravity do its job for 10 mins. Then I slowly bring my legs back down. Help?
