Britney Spears Doing a Split

This Britney Spears Instagram Snap Will Make You Want to Learn the Splits

We loved seeing Britney Spears doing a handstand against the wall while kissing her little niece. And the duo are back at it again, showing off their splitsies.

It's amazing that Britney pulls off this Seated Straddle so effortlessly — she has some crazy-flexible hamstrings! And her niece is practically captain of the split club! This pose is essential for runners, skiers, cyclists, and those who sit at a desk all day. Opening up the backs of the legs and stretching the lower back not only prevents pain and injury, but there's an unbelievable grounding sensation that comes over you when you can have your sitting bones pressing into the Earth. Are you ready to give it a go? Here are some tricks for mastering a Seated Straddle.
