Splits away, on holiday!Β 

Well we’re back home from our travels! 

Our adventure was unreal and I can’t believe how fast its gone after all the planning that went into it! 
One of the things I did as a bit of a fun challenge for myself was attempting the splits in every country! 
I say attempting because I don’t officially have a flat split, but I am closer than I have ever been before and I’m still pretty happy with what I could do without a full warm up! 

My first one was pretty rushed we were at a palace and apparently it wasn’t okay to split on a stone bench, so this was a very hurried photo as the guard was shouting Romanian at us πŸ˜‚ 
The warm weather definitely helped to relax my muscles and as I hadn’t been training for a few days my first split was my best one! 

Here’s my splits from, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Czech Republic and Germany 😝 

By Prague I had done a couple of classes and we had been waking miles everyday, so despite the warm weather my hip flexors and calf muscles were feeling very tight and even after a decent warm up this was as low as I could go! 

I’ve been working on my splits since about a year after I started pole, so about 4 years now, however due to an accident and a leg injury it means my progress has definitely been slow. 
Every year I say I will have my splits by Christmas but you know what, I think this year might actually be the year!! 

I’m going to continue to post my progress and have an upcoming post about some of my favourite (said through gritted teeth) stretches that I feel have helped me the most with achieving my split so far!
