Is this stretch dangerous?

Hey everybody, i have a small question on a stretch.. This may be hard to explain- so, sorry if it makes no sense! :D


Okay, so some people have told me that doing this stretch is dangerous, but others have told me that it's great for second splits etc.. :wacko:

The stretch goes like this;

You lie stomach down, with your legs out in a " frog position" so that your legs are at a right angle to your body. And bent at the knees.

I was just wondering if anybody knows if this stretch IS safe to do, or if I should not be doing it at all..?

Oh, and if the stretch doesn't make any sense- then just say and I will stry and descibe it better! :dry:


Thanks again!
