    I Was So Proud

    I got into splits in i think 3 months and when i was doing rythmic gymnastics the girl i was in the same level with had been there for twice as long as me and she still couldnt do the splits. I can do them now without even stretching first and it doesnt hurt a bit. *proud face*

    I Used to Be Able to Do It..

    because I was in some kind of dance-class and our teacher wanted us to be able to do it.. so I did stretching everyday and soon I was able to do it. But I stopped going to the dance-class because we danced to music I didn't like and it was all very well.. kind of slutty.. and...

    Splits Are Awesome

    When i was in primary school, there were a lot of kids who did gymnastics. So they could all do the splits. I often felt like the odd one out, just because i couldn't do the splits. I wasn't even close to them, and it didn't matter how much i tried.  I always thought that they...

    My Bigest Triumph:

    Sinking

    Yup, my gym teacher always used to say I had great flexibility. I was so amazed I actually went and looked up what the word meant. I can still dot hem today, and take great pride in making my friends go 'wow' as they see me slowly sink to the floor.

    Sideways But Not Forward Anymore

      I can still do a sideways split really well, but I can't get down quite all the way doing a forward one. Maybe I'm not as flexible as I used to be.

    I Can Do The Oversplits

    It started when I joined my ballet school, the teacher was all about the flexiblility, so when I did the splits straight down, she got me started on the oversplits road. At my best I had my legs up on two chairs and my bottom on the floor and I could still rotate my body to put...
