  • DO YOU WANT TO PANCAKE? -

The Pancake is a great demonstration of flexibility in the hips, hamstrings, back, and adductors and extremely useful for advanced bodyweight exercises that involve a straddle such as Straddle Planche, Straddle Press, Straddle Front Lever, etc. The following exercises demonstrated by GMB Trainer Eduardo @eorihuela are modifications to the Pancake and can also be applied to the Middle Split. Start on an elevated surface like a couch, bench, or chair with your legs bent and chest open. Pulse in and out of the movement and place your hands in a position that feels good for you. -

When it comes to stretching you want to work at a level that you can still breathe and smile through. There’s no need to force a stretch, if anything it’s counterintuitive. You’ll actually get tighter and sore if it hurts, so it’s somewhat frustrating but you have to be patient and work at a level that stretches but doesn’t hurt. -

A good way to relax into the stretch is by breathing. Inhale deeply then exhale like your fogging up a mirror and relax into the stretch. You’ll feel instantly lighter and gain some range in the stretch if you just relax. -

Here you’ll see two ways you can place your hands:
1. Behind your head (without cranking your neck) 
2. Behind your hips pushing against the floor. As you progress, gradually straighten the legs and lower the elevation so that you get closer to the floor. -

Quick Tips: 
1. Stay consistent - Skills, whether its strength, flexibility, or body awareness requires consistency, persistence, and patience 
2. Be mindful - Skipping ahead just makes the process take longer 
3. Be OK with sucking at first. Skills will be hard for a VERY long time. Regress if you have to
