I really loved the summer splits challenge. It was a good combination of splits, hip openers, and arm balances. Below, I’ve posted the final few poses and then a before and after shot of Lord of the Dance pose.
Want to see a HUGE improvement in this one? Click here. I’m using the wall, and in handstand, but I’m *so* close to touching my toes to my head.
The picture below is the before and after with about 3 weeks of practicing Lord of the Dance pose every other day or so. Improvement is slight, but it feels a lot easier to move in to. I couldn’t even do it at first. Now, my leg is slightly higher, as is my chest. I definitely think the Summer Splits Challenge has helped deepen my splits.
For anyone interested in the Summer Splits challenge, I’d recommend checking out the Summer Splits Week 1 post and searching on Instagram for #SummerSplitsChallenge.
