Hi,

I don't have any first hand advice. I'm an inflexible mom to a super flexible daughter! I can suggest that you look at this web site for ideas. http://www.drillsandskills.com/forum/ They have a message board specifically for conditioning and stretching, and some of the ideas listed there will probably work for you.

I hope that helps.

I am etremely flexible! Try stretching after a warm bath; you're more flexible then. Strong hip flexers are important! Try pilates. Also try a move where you sit straight up against a wall. Straddle as big as you can and gently lift your legs up ten times. It'll be difficult for awhile, but keep doing it! It will REALLY help!!!!!!!!!!!

I've never posted there, but I have read a bunch of the messages and they seem to be a well informed bunch. I hope you find some useful tips.

It's bad to bounce in your splits if you don't know your personal limits. If you have ridiculous hip flexers, you wont do as much or any damage.
