"How to Do the Splits for Beginner Gymnasts!
A Step by Step Guide to Mastering the Center Split for Gymnastics.
Knowing how to do a center split is just as important as learning to do a front split for use in your gymnastics routines. You will use a center split during straddle jumps, side leaps, press to handstands, stalders, flairs on the pommel horse, and scales. Here is how to get into a great center split, starting with stretches for all of the different muscles that you will use.
A split is one of those moves that is really easy for some people and much harder for others. But almost anyone can do a split! Even if youre as tight as can be youll still be able to master it if you work hard at your stretching.
A great way to get (or improve) your split is to move through a series of different stretches, from simple to advanced. If you are a beginner, youll probably want to master the easier stretches first before moving on to full split stretches."
