Stretch out your legs for at least 15 minutes. You can do sitting and standing leg stretches such as butterfly, forward leg stretches and toe touches.
Kneel upright on the floor. Place your right foot in front of your left knee and lean forward, letting your fingertips touch the floor on both sides of your right foot.
Stretch your right leg out forward while your left leg begins to straighten out behind you. Keep your chin pointing toward your right foot and your right kneecap pointing up.
Hold this pose for one minute trying to sink your hips as close to the floor as possible.
Repeat this pose at least five times for the first two days, allowing your hips to get closer to the floor while straightening your legs.
Increase your practice splits to five times in the morning and five times in afternoon or evening for the next four days. Continue to do other leg stretches for 15 minutes prior to practicing your splits.
Continue to practice your splits daily. Practicing splits several times a day should help you achieve a full split within a week. If the progress is slow, add more stretches and splits to your routine.
