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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Hold this supported split variation for 30 seconds switching sides and repeating.
You can perform 2 sets.
