http://fitforafeast.com/on_the_mat.htm Learn how to do the splits in this video tutorial. Katrina and Sloane show you tips to do the leg splits in both side splits and middle splits.

There is no instant way (unless you are already really flexible) to learn how to do a split. You have to work on them and do lots of stretching to increase your flexibility. You should try to work on them every day - holding each stretch for 20 to 30 seconds and practicing at least 20 minutes. Most people find they can get their splits in 30 days or less. The more you practice - the faster you will make progress.

Do the split by warming up first and getting a good stretch so you don't injure yourself and proceed slowly. If you try and force your leg or hip muscles into place, you coud injure yourself. This will just set you back and could also be very painful. It takes time to see progress, but if you consistently do the stretches we show in this video, your splits will get better, just be patient and go slow at it to begin with. If you have health issues, leg injuries or are not used to exercising, check with your doctor before you begin.
