Hey Tanya,

 

Thank you for purchasing your very own custom middle split program. 

You can find the whole workout on this page. You say you want to improve your active middle split. This is possible but you have to understand that you first have to improve your passive middle split. 
Active flexibility is stronger/deeper than the passive one. Imagine trying to drive a car as fast as possible that has a speed limiter. It is impossible to go faster than that limit!

We created a routine for you that will help you improve your passive flexibility whilst at the same time working your active one.

Please after doing the routine a few times film the following exercises for me:

  • Middle Split With 1 Leg Bent and Straight Upper Body
  • Diamond Frog
  • Middle Split with Elastic behind back on back
  • Straight to Middle Split
  • Swimmer with elevated glutes

 

If you have any questions please reach out via email

Happy stretching 🙂

Practice

Improving flexibility takes time. It does not come over night. Always make sure to warm up well and to stay warm while stretching. The warmer you are the easier the muscles will open up!
