Using a variety of modalities can help you achieve better flexibility. In this video series, I am going off the assumption that you have been stretching and working on your flexibility, but aren't quite where you'd like to be with your splits.


The middle (or straddle) splits can be the most challenging to master. Regardless of your flexibility level, these three tricks will help you move beyond your sticking point and finally get or improve your middle splits.


You will need two blocks and two light weights for these stretches. I'm using two light kettlebells in the video, but you can also use ankle weights.
