2 Exercises For Front Split Flexibility

It just didn’t really seem that important. Until recently.

Last week after months of attempting full leg raises without success you finally decided to start working on your flexibility.

Red-cheeked, with pure agony on your face you reached for your toes, to realize you couldn’t even pass beyond your knees.

Those 10 muscle ups you recently crossed off your to-do-list didn’t prepare you for a simple exercise that a 2-year old can do without even warming up.

 

Why haven’t you spent any time on getting more flexible? Why do you always feel so weak when attempting to stretch? Don’t you want to do the most advanced skills?

Surely, there has to be something wrong with your muscles.

When you come out of your stretch, you usually look and feel like a 98-year old who just got hit by a car.

So you tell yourself that your muscles are genetically short.

You aren’t stiff because you haven’t worked on your flexibility, you are stiff because your mom and dad made you that way.

Do you recognise the feeling? The thought?

 

After all, we never really want to blame ourselves and take responsibility if the answer would be that we were simply: “Too lazy”.

If you were put under anaesthesia you’d be able to do full splits.

Lack of flexibility means that you are weak in that area of your body, that’s why your body blocks you from getting into that position to protect you.

The good thing? You can win your body’s trust back. Thankfully, it’s forgiving.

Even you can get a front split. Yes, you can become flexible.

You want it more than anything.

It’s in your waking thoughts. You daydream about it.

Still, you are afraid to express it, but deep down a crystal clear voice has been yelling in your mind:

“I am going to be stronger than all of you!”

At the background you can’t help but hear the voices of your friends and family, telling that you need to grow up and realise that ‘the time to dream’ has passed.

 

I hate to admit it, but it’s true – you have been with your head in the clouds for so long that you actually aren’t getting the right things done.

I mean your lower back is weak and it only seems to get worse.

You tell yourself it’s because you are getting too old.

Except, you aren’t. You just haven’t been working on your weakest link enough.

This is how you can make EVERYTHING else stronger. (more…)

The Guide To Learn The Pistol Squat

Can you learn how to do remarkable things?

Can you learn the skills that will make people say: “Wauw, that’s impossible for me!”?

You might think some people are born to be remarkable.

You either have a genetic advantage or you don’t.

 

Lazar. Dusan. Hannibal for King have the right genes. People like Frank Medrano, Ido Portal, Al Kavadlo. Brandon Meyers has them too, and Adam Raw, and Hit Richards.

The list of extraordinary people goes on and on.

But ordinary people like you and me?

 

Not too long ago, I used to think I was just too much of an average Joe to even scratch the surface of what those people were doing.

Too weak. Too old. Too little. Too much of anything I could think of.

Thinking about doing remarkable stuff would make me chuckle too.

I could never do that impossible stuff!

 

If the same belief keeps crossing your mind. Let me tell you that your thinking is flawed. 

It’s not impossible. If it were, why are so many people doing it?

They are the living proof that you can learn what they are doing. Even you can do the ‘extraordinary’.

Let me tell you how.  (more…)
