day 1 – front splits

Decided, as a stiff man I want to join the challenge over the next 100 days. Unfortunately no pics until tomorrow, but I did just over an hour and ended with front split routine.

Noticed the half lotus is tough for me, but in a doorway I got into a comfortable position and didn’t do bad on pigeon. With straight legs I’d say I’m about 2 feet away from front splits, plus the dynamic warm up as stretches were great.

cheers

Welcome to the flexibility challenge Paul, I’m glad to hear you enjoyed the routine! I look forward to seeing your progress along the way. 🙂

A little tip to start you off, try using two chairs to prop your forearms on while you’re doing your splits, that way you’ll be more comfortable and can focus on breathing, engaging and relaxing.

Happy Stretching!
