How to

Starting Position

1. Make sure to warm up your muscles before attempting the side split. 2. Do not push your body beyond its limits. 3. If you feel any pain or discomfort, stop immediately and consult a professional.

Proper Form

1. Push off the ground with your hands and begin to move your hips and legs further apart. 2. Keep your back straight, and focus on pushing your hips and legs as far apart as you can. 3. Hold the side split position for 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Breathing Technique

1. As you move into the side split position, take a deep breath in. 2. As you hold the side split position, breathe deeply and steadily. 3. As you move out of the side split position, exhale.

Precautions

1. Begin by standing up straight, with your feet together and your arms by your sides. 2. Step one foot forward, about two feet away from the other, with your feet parallel to each other. 3. Slowly lower your hips down towards the ground, placing your hands on the ground in front of you.
