acropunk posted a topic in MobilityI have been working on my splits. I basically realized without them, I might as well not even try to achieve a lot of movements I want to. I think splits (side and front) are necessary. With them everything will get easier, from flags to hand stands to even a basic cartwheel. Looking at hip anatomy images, it looks like the splits shouldn't even be possible. I would like to know at what position the femoral head and neck are when in the splits, in relation to the pelvis, and pelvic tilt. So far I have not found anything. I have found descriptions of pelvic tilt, but no anatomical images. Also I wonder if the difference between feet forward and feet up in the splits is basically an issue of pelvic tilt, and if the femoral neck changes much in the acetabulum when switching from feet up to feet forward or 'rocking' in the side splits. Thanks
Hi ! The title nearly says it all. Ive heard different opinions: that you should stretch every day or twice a day. another information source said to stretch every other day. i want to improove overall flexibility and be able to do pikes and leg splits and i have heard that having good flexibility will help to develop acrobatic skills aswell. And i have a question : Will stretching decrease my strength progressing from Static and bodyweight exercises ? I'm talking about a serious stretch that takes about 30 min or so. Any advice or answer will be appreciated ! Thank you !
