You get what you get, it's still a split.
The Splits. To some the idea is down right ridiculous and the words are synonymous with injury. To be in a split requires a lot of movement in the hip joints. The forward leg gets a loooong Hamstring, and the back leg a looong hip flexor. For some, these areas will feel long when they’re resting on the floor, for most, they will feel as long as they can be long before they are resting on the floor.
With exercise, one can increase the range of motion of the hips, but this should be done with extreme care. while you’re practicing hip opening exercises, give yourself ample time to get warmed up. When moving into a split pay attention to your hamstrings, hip flexors and low back. the low back should stay comfortable, and any stretch you feel should be in between joints, NOT right next to them.
Most importantly, remember the splits can’t be considered a normal range of motion. You may practice getting deeper, but your splits will always LOOK different from your buddy’s.
