Supported splits: how to do the splits

Before you engage in a full split, trying out this stretch with a block is a perfect way to ease into it.

The following are pro-tips on how you can ease your way into these splits.

  1. Start in a low lunge position with right leg forward, placing a yoga block or foam roller underneath right thigh while keeping the torso upright.
  2. Tuck left toes under, and slowly move out your left leg into an extended position along the floor, simultaneously extending right leg, drawing right toes toward ceiling.
  3. Hold this supported split variation for 30 seconds switching sides and repeating.

You can perform 2 sets.
