Can you do the splits now? how about half your lifetime ago?

I am 29 and have a replaced knee.... I am 99% sure I could still do the splits BUT I'd dislocate some joints for sure. 1/2 my lifetime ago was highschool and I totally could, yes. SUPER flexible and also great at hurdles in track. I was so bendy! Now I can barely get on/off the floor, lol!

  • I never could do splits, I never was interested in doing splits, and if I attempted it now; just have the ambulance on standby, ok?! (LOL)

  • No way! I'm slowly getting back into exercising but no, if I tried the splits I'd end up needing help to get off the floor. And maybe a trip to the hospital.

  • Not yet, but I'm working on it. I need to be able to do the splits in one direction before I can get my black belt. I'm quite a way off right now because it kills my bad knee!

  • No, even when I was a dancer I could never do them. Got close, but never all the way.
