Time to remind my body of its flexibility

My self-made flexibility classI've been saying for weeks I need to improve my flexibility but I haven't really spent a whole training session dedicated just for flexibility. So tonight I wanted to see how far I can go.
Recommendation for beginners in flexibilityI also don't recommend this if you have never done the splits before as you could hurt yourself. Do everything slowly and make sure you have a spotter to help lift you if you can't get back up.
My flexibility lessonI did lots of pre-stretching, I did the half split and front leg underneath and did this on both sides. I just tried the splits myself twice first and then got my husband to hold my arms up straight, which is quite difficult but it would be like I was holding the silk so you need a different strength and I went a good distance that I will now start trying with the silk.
I also went on tippy toes and did a side split on the half wall. Important to make sure your hip is straight forward in line with your other hip. Lower the height until you get this right. I tried on both legs a couple of times.
