The closer you get the harder it normally is. As long as you keep on going it should be alright.
Many people I know had a good progress and they got to a stage where it slowed down, although after a few weeks they passed that and now can do the splits.
So keep up the good work.

You misunderstood me, after I started measuring I suddenly gained about 7 cm or so in 1 week, and haven't gained a single cm since (lost 1 cm). I could push myself again, but I don't know if that'd be such a good idea (of course that'd bring me to about 10 cm, which would be very nice)

By the way, is it all right to cheat on front splits by leaning forward to rely on the flexibility of certain muscles and avoidig others when measuring? Because I won't be able to do a front split without the side split otherwise.

I understand what you are saying. All I can say is keep up the good work and if you feel the need to push yourself then do so, but not too far or you could cause injury.
I guess this cheat you are talking about is acceptible although it would be more effecient if you could do it properly.
Keep up the good work though

First day back at work today. Like I mentioned earlier in this thread I would probably find it harder to stretch whilst at work, although seeing as I am so motivated I made sure I had some time to stretch today. It was great.
I firslty had my class tonight and then got home and did even more stretching than the stretching carried out in class.
I feel so energized from it all, its great. I feel that some good results are going to be coming my way next measurements.
I hope the same can be said for all of you

Good to see you back Foundation!! You're well low now. Tezza is right, from talking to the people I know who can do the splits when they got close they were stuck like it for ages. Instead of pushing really hard for new results and risking injuring yourself and going backwards, maybe you could just keep at what your doing and maybe change some of your usual stretches for some new ones? Also, if you do your front splits near a chair or something that wont move you could use it to push against with your hands so that you lean backwards and stretch those stubborn muscles?!!

Well done Tezza, "success breeds success" and I think we're all feeling it now!! Only those of us dedicated are going to get there and I recon you're in the running for it!!

Onb, I little tip..........GO TO THE BL*@DY DOCTORS!!!!!!

Anybody given any thought to what to do after we get there? I've thought about and think progress should be measured by how high the feet can be lifted from the floor with the groin still on the ground.

Rossko

P.S. will we be seeing your results this weekend MikeMartial?? Be great to see you join in, it was your original posts that gave me this idea in the first place. So I guess thanks are in order!! Thanks!

Welcome D0minar,

Your similar to me, left leg front split is way easier than right forwards. I have been in full front split before with the left forwards but I've let that slide a bit lately because I'm trying to focus on my side split. Your seem pretty bendy so far tho!!

Thanx man. My body is weird. I got front split left side when i was 16 (im 27 now) by forcing myself from about 15 cm down all the way in one day hehe. It worked. After that I didnt stretch for like 10 years.. After a week or so I got left side back again. I can get right side full if i try, but its not important to me as side split.. so all i do now is do side split stretching. But no too sure if im doing it right... hense other posts i posted now now in the forum heh. Anyway. I'll measure every monday now. Will see if Kruz's magic works

Thats a pretty crazy stretch routine you had going on that day!!!! Somehow it obviously worked tho!! Good to have you on board. As far as I'm concerned Kurtz knows his stuff!! Most of us on here are using his methods to varying but mostly positive results!! Any questions just post them on here and we'll all give you our two pennies worth!!
