Side Splits Advanced

Side Split Cold and Beyond is an advanced flexibility program for the straddle. When students achieve their side splits, there are usually two questions that come up.

  1. How can I keep my split, after the workout.
  2. How can develop my split to transfer it over in various skills.

There are people who master their split for no other reason, than because it's cool. It's a benchmark of self-achievement in flexibility, it's a cool party trick, it's something that Jean Claude Van Damme does almost in every movie. This is enough for many to strive toward this stretch. To each it's own. However what good is the split, if you can only do it after 30 minutes of warm up? 

Muscles Involved in a Side Split

Virtually all hip muscles are stretched. Each one must be taken care of separately, and this is one of the key points of Zaichik Stretching Techniques (formerly known as Kinesiological Stretching Techniques).

How to Achieve a Side Split

The Zaichik Stretching Method:

  • Isolates muscles actions one by one.
  • Takes care of the ones that are tighter first.
  • Allows easier focus since you are working on one specific area at a time.
  • No pushing or bouncing is necessary, not even a partner.
  • Pain is not present at all.
  • Totally safe, since it was designed according to what is natural for the body.
  • Gains are permanent and steady.
  • It is very enjoyable to do, and feels more like a workout
  • Results are visible right away since the stretch reflex is avoided.
