Hey guys, i have been stretching really consistently for about 3 months now and am happy with my progress. However, I seem to be a little bit stuck. I'm not quite in full splits yet and my hips don't open as much as I'd like them to. It's been a few weeks now where I've been kinda stuck. So I guess my question is how should I proceed. I know a lot of us have seen students being "broken" by their masters and forced(somewhat painfully) into splits. It always seemed to me that after a couple of these sessions the person became way more flexible. At the same time though science says that doing that may tear your muscles and ruin your life. So, if someone who has some experience with this could lend some input, it would be much appreciated!!
