Hi, I'm Danielle Wechsler. We are here at East Coast Conditioning Center and this is how to do a straddle split. Remember as cheerleaders, if you want to advance your stunting and tumbling, it's important to know how to train for flexibility in your hips and legs for those straddle splits. Now to get that straddle split, it's important to focus on strengthening your hip flexors. For this we can do an exercise where you're sitting in a straddle position, core tight abs engaged. Sit nice and tall with your palms on the floor. As you straighten your right leg, lift it up from the hip flexor, lifting and rising it up and down for a total of 10 times. Repeat this then on your left side. Do this every morning and every night during the day, and you will see your splits get better in no time. And for another thing, practice makes perfect. So you want to focus on practicing your splits starting in a straddle split in the middle, holding this for 30 to 60 seconds at least once a day, and now go to your right side so you're gonna focus on a right split, going down as low as you can until you feel that stretch. Then to the left, try to get a little bit lower each day. You'll see that practice makes perfect, and you'll be able to get your splits in no time.
