Learn to do the split

Postby Kajiramar В» 18.04.2020

All In The Dark : "A New Farce in Two Acts" presented at the Theatre-Royal, Edinburgh (February, 1832).

So, in the name of athleticism and improved mobility, I challenged myself or rather, surrendered my tight hamstrings and hip flexors to a day split challenge. The month began with a lot of questions: Could a monthlong foray with my yoga mat, some stretches, and 10 to 15 minutes a day help reverse the effects of my sit-all-day work routine?

Would this actually work, even for my yoga-antithetical self? Thirty days later, my hips have stopped snap-crackle-popping every time I sit down. As for whether or not I can ease into a split as gracefully as the bendy stars you see on Instagram, keep reading to find out.

I strength train, run, and do CrossFit regularly. Or even a week. Sure, he may have been trying to help temper my expectations. But as a former college athlete and current CrossFit competitor, I took it as a challenge. Each day during the challenge you have to do stretches numbered 1 through 5 out of 30 , your foundational stretches.

Sheppard confirms that the variety of stretches in this day challenge was a real positive because each stretch would help target all those small muscles. Once I settled on the plan, I printed it out and set daily reminders for 2 p. I work from home and I figured a midday stretch session would be a nice break from my work. I was ready to embark on my journey to a swole and flexy future. The first day, my alarm bleeped with the same tune I use to wake up in the morning.

This alarmed pun intended me so much, that I jumped up from my chair and rammed my kneecaps into my desk. For the next 10 minutes, I bent, folded, pulled, and lunged my body into positions my body was definitely not used to.

I held each position for one minute, as instructed — which felt, truly, like the longest minute of my life. By the end of those 10 minutes, my hips felt a little looser, but those minutes were not easy.

The rest of the first week was pretty similar: Every day at 2 p. Wickham says that for the first week in particular, I should pay attention to how my body was feeling during the stretch. If it still hurts, try changing the angle a bit. And if you ever feel a sharp or tingling pain, stop. That first week I had to do a lot of readjusting. But by the end of the week, my body felt more comfortable getting into and holding each pose for 60 seconds.

The first week, I did my best not to push too hard while I was stretching. But given how sore I was, I worried something was up. Keeping my promise to myself not to get injured, I called up Sheppard to check in. Warm up with simple stretches like reaching for your toes before tackling more complicated ones. I was less sore from the stretching itself during that second week, and I was starting to see some incremental improvements in how deep I could get in my lunges and folds.

Do not skip a single day. Between deadlines, snoozed 2 p. And honestly, on day 24, I understood why the creator, Cassey Ho, was so insistent on consistency: Those stretches felt so much harder after a day off — especially the lunge. I spent close to 18 minutes stretching that day, which helped shake off some the tightness from not stretching the day before. Scrolling through the JourneytoSplits tag made it clear that other challengers were way closer to getting splits than I was!

So, with only a week left in my challenge, and still pretty far off from my end goal of getting into a split, I got a bit impatient. I decided to add a second bout of stretching to my routine, postworkout. This success was likely not a coincidence. One study found that when athletes with tight hips squatted, a chain reaction occurred and they had decreased muscle activation in both the hip flexors and extensors think: the booty.

Maybe opening my hips for those extra few minutes a day had helped me increase the activation of the muscles in my booty, which led to me squatting more weight. But after sticking to the plan for a couple of weeks, I noticed a legit difference! And an all over one. Walking around my apartment, I sounded less like the broken wind chime at a haunted house.

My hips felt less agitated and more open during both my workday as I sat and during CrossFit, where I squatted regularly. But the biggest thing I learned was how much a dedicated mobility practice affects, well, everything! Whether or not you should do a day split challenge depends on your goals. But having flexible hamstrings and mobile hip joints does more than determine how bendy you are. As Sheppard rightfully brings up: The benefits you get from being flexible can help improve form, range of motion, performance, and prevent risk of injuries related to your back.

Oh, and did I mention I can finally touch my toes? Gabrielle Kassel is a rugby-playing, mud-running, protein-smoothie-blending, meal-prepping, CrossFitting, New York-based wellness writer.

Stretching should never cause way work pain. So the first day, you do only stretch 1, and the second day you only do stretch 2, until day 6, then you do all 5, including 6? Hope says:.
