The splits use many muscles, and focus should be put on using the many different muscle groups involved. It's important to warm up and stretch the muscles before beginning the routine, to avoid injury. Adjusting the angles of the stretch, and using static stretching sets the groundwork for performing the splits safely and effectively.
