"I had purchased Paul's " Everything You Wanted to Know About the Splits DVD" and was very enlightened by his technique. I tripled my flexibility." - Craig Breuwet

"It's just a hair short of two hours..and two hours with Paul is like four hours with most of the time-wasters that sell DVDs. This is nothing but moves-moves-moves, with short, insightful explanations about the underlying common aspects of all the stretches for any given muscle. I know more about stretches now than after all the other books and videos I've seen, put together.
This is the single best exercise DVD out there, for it's combination of quantity and quality. I have no doubt that he has continued to find a wealth of other high-quality exercises that he hasn't had a chance to release.
I wish he'd put together a series for TV: "Wake up in the morning and work out with Paul". Maybe he's not show-bizy enough to do that, but I enjoy the way he lays it out. There's almost no time for a casual comment, with the program so filled with pertinent information." - Lazur

When I bought the manual, I emailed Paul and told him that if this is another B.S I will make sure people know about. I also told him that If I get my split before my birthday, October 18th, I will also scream it out loud. Well listen up, today is October 2nd, I did a full split and it feels GOOD. That's right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Rockettone
If I would have found this website earlier my flexibility training would have been different and safer. Better late than never. -Frank Wilson, Pushmataha, Oklahoma
I just got elasticsteel book yesterday. This morning I practised all the exercises on the book. Surprisingly I didn't feel pain in my low back pain and hip when I attempted side splits as shown in the book although I have been suffering back pain and hip injury for about 17 years which was results of isometric stretching method which I learned from stretching book by another "expert".  - wolvie

Hello. I've been working on the exercises fromElastic Steel for a week. I simply can't believe the results. Maybe this sounds like a stupid advertisement but so do the other messages I read about people that had the same experience.
Actually I noticed something "new" on my legs right after the first session; my knees didn't hurt at all, and when I finished with the hip turns I stood up, I threw a kick and I laughed!! My hips didn't click anymore, and moving my legs was just like moving my arms.
Also, I used to have a slight pain in my quads every time I attempted a front split. Guess what? It's not there anymore; all the previous exercises you do before the split seem to have kind of fixed it or whatever. So, now you know, if you still have some problems with your hips or something similar keep on doing the conditioning exercises and the techniques explained in the book.
Never give up. Thank you Paul!!!!!!!!!!!!! Regards. -Daniel, Buenos Aires, Argentina"
Find out how to take the advantage of your bodyís natural wisdom to painlessly boost flexibility. Thanks to Paul Zaichik's brilliant easy to follow and understand instructions, the power of "Secret Flexbility" knowledge can now be yours!
But that's not all!!! You will also learn:
Unlike any other work on stretching, this DVD details a very important aspect of flexibility training; Tissue relaxation through the use of massage. Paul demonstrates how to precisely massage each muscle and tendon responsible for split flexibility. Massage is a privileged secret companion to stretching of many elite athletes.
It has long been proven that any time you take two people of the same ability, stretching side by side, the ones whose muscles are loosened through massage will get faster and easier results. It's a fact - massage is a tool that can take your flexibility beyond a wall that you have hit years ago.And in this very video you will learn two types of massage techniques. Each is capable of giving you an ability to stretch further and deeper every time you stretch.
"Got the book on the thursday before christmas and have spent the last 3 weeks concentrating only on side split conditioning exercises. anyone who read my previous post will have read that my hips were in agony & i was stuck at about 1 foot away from the side split.
Today i decided to do the whole routine for side split including massaging with the castor oil but i didn't really expect to see much difference. the result ???.
I even had to shout my wife to come and see me as i was so excited. I ABSOLOUTLEY LOVE YOU PAUL !!! six inches away from the split.(six inches) i couldn't beleive it, anyway for those of you unsure about whether the program actually works get stuck into the conditioning before you bother with stretching( my mistake over the past 16 years) and you will honestly see results. Cheers paul! -Sean"
Posture is a much neglected part of training. May be it should not be.Think about it. What two types of physical performers are most know for their flexibility? Dancers and gymnasts. Guess what? Have you seen their posture? As a rule of thumb, they have perfect postures. Most flexible people, place great value on posture.
Coincidence? Of course not. Muscles are more relaxed when posture is maintained, and hence are less resistant to stretching. Extended length conditioning come to mind; two basic rules here:
  1. Resistance to stretching is less when the muscle is strong in specific ranges.
  2. Properly warmed up and strategically fatigued muscle tissue much more welcoming to adoption of increased length.
Proper Warm Up!
Have you ever watched a mixed class of students stretching, in martial arts class? The youngsters who can do the split at the beginning of a class can do it at the end just as well or better. The adults on the other hand who suffer to get into the position at the begging of class still suffer at the end.
Unfortunately most flexibility challenged donít get more flexible with each passing month. Most of them would, if only they had warmed up properly! Even with those poor quality stretching instruction that are now the norm; "Alright guys, spread you legs. Reach for your left foot and now for the right, and now reach forward. Ok, done with stretching, moving on.Ē Sounds familiar? Unfortunately most instructors are not experts in flexibility. If they were, you would be splitting with ease and not reading about this DVD!
"Paul gives you step by step instructions on what to do to get that flexibility! I love his program! I was trying to get a split for years now, but to no avail. I've tried so many different programs that claimed to work but didn't, but Paul's method is the best!" - Mandy Rogers, USA
Basic Stretches
If you have read the book, you know the power of progression. You know how the right sequence can uncover your flexibility potential. The book contains only one sequence, the fact is, itís not the exercises that you use that matter but which muscles you stretch in relation to others.
The DVD covers all the stretches for a specific muscle in the scientific sequence. You get to pick the exercises that you like for each muscle group. You also get a sample routine to follow, while you are choosing the most comfortable exercises for you.
Deep Stretches
These are split specific stretches. Armed with split specific warm up and the massage techniques, split specific stretches will melt your legs into the split faster than you ever thought possible.
Conditioning Exercises
Here you will learn moves that give your nervous and muscular system strength and confidence that allow you to achieve splits safe and fast!
Every exercise is demonstrated as body weight resistance first and then with the resistance of the elastic band. You get a choice of the exercises so; you always stay interested and focused throughout your training all the way to full splits.
Joint Rotaions
The commonly ignored joint rotation is demonstrated in the proper sequence. This is an essential part of the safe and effective warm up.

The goal of this DVD is straight forward and simple. It was made with only one objective in mind.
To enable you to achieve full splits.

 As a by product you will experience an improved posture, stronger and more defined legs and mid-section.

 An ability to relax.

 Learn to be in control of your breathing.

Still not convinced that my training method is the RIGHT choice for you?!
Read on to see others' success with ElasticSteel Method:
"As a martial artist I believe that if you canít say something about some, donít say anything at all. I am not going to trash anyone, but I would like to share what happened to me a year and a half ago. I am 51 and I practice tae Kwan do. I like to compete, thatís what I do in my spare time. Any way, my kicks are strong, so are my punches, but flexibility is where the problem was. I always dreamed of scoring points with kicks to the head. I also wanted to be able to do a split, but I accepted that fact that at my age I may never achieve it. One day I was competing in a tournament in New York, and I saw an ad. in a locker room. There was a seminar after the tournament. The promised to double the flexibility in one evening. I try plenty of those before, and it was B.S. I decided to try it since; they said that if the flexibility was not doubled, they would give money back. I had nothing to loose, just 90 minutes of my time. So I stayed for the seminar.When I paid (a good sum of money) I was given a card to fill out. At the beginning of the seminar, they asked me to sit on the floor and open the legs, and then they measured the distance between my feet. (It was 59 inches) For the next 75 or so minutes we did different exercises, tons of them. Some of them I did before, some of them I have never heard of. We did a lot of stretches and a lot of calisthenics. Finally they asked us to sit with legs open again. This time the distance between my feet was 66 inches. The flexibility did not exactly double, but it was better. I never measured the distance before, so I had not idea if I did better than in my usual Tae kwan do class.

I went home not sure what to think. After all, I did not get a full split. And for me to get more flexibility I need to practice those exercise on my own. How ever they did not give any hand outs, and I forgot most of the stuff. Well next 3 days were hell. My legs were so stiff, that I could barely move my legs apart. (37 inches to be precise, since now I measured it.) The bad thing is, after the stiffness went away, my flexibility did not increase a bit.I did not mind the pain, but I donít like to be cheated. And my money donít exactly fall on me on the street. I will hold on to my creed how ever and will not give the name of the person or the tournament that preceded this B.S. seminar.

Less than six months ago, I was looking things up on line and found. Elastic Steel website. I saw the pictures of Paul Zaichik doing his thing. Honestly I thought that it is one of those B.S. things. I was just wondering why the price of the manual was only 22.95. I thought it was total garbage, especially for that price. Itís hard to blame me, since I tried so much stuff, and it was all in vain. I donít know why but I bought manual. I email Paul, and to my surprise he emailed me back. He told me that, I must follow the method the way it was in a manual. I was not very happy that, it would take me a few months to actually begin to pracise deep stretches. How ever, I got my son into it and we both decided to do it. To make a long story short, I can do side split and a front split with both legs in front. I also go to the tournament and score with kicks to the head, both legs equally.

P.S. now I know why I was able to improve my flexibility slightly at that seminar. It is because they tested us cold and than warmed us up for over an hour, no wonder we all go more flexible for that instance. Any way, Paul G-d bless you. And thank you Alex for working out with your old man. -Mark Zatkovetski New York, N.Y."

"Ilike the Elasticsteel program. It is diligently put together. I was not forced to run around the bush and try to figure out how to do things. Everything is easy, and right there. -Marry Goldfeld."


"Focusing on stretching, this way getting the splits is rather unique. My favorite part of the book is the extended length stretching. -Genel McGinney"

"As a dancer, I am always concerned for my hips. I know that increasing flexibility, can cause my hips to be long term injured. I tried many ways of conditioning my hips to prevent injury. I spend years on weight training, weight machines, yoga, Pilates. Still my hip clicking and pain was getting worst. Now itís been about 6 weeks since I been practicing hip turn in and hip turn out, stability circles and extended length conditioning. My hips are getting stronger and itís getting to the point where I donít have to constantly worry about injuring them. -Lisa Huang"

"Hi there, I am a part time sport karate instructor. I am glad that I gave your book a shot. My kid students very often have problems with control and clarity of the kicks. And almost every other adult student canít easily kick to the head. Your book gave me a powerful arsenal of tips and techniques that I now use. Thank you very much. -Master John S."

"After a month of kick specific training, the power of my kicks have improved. Plus I can kick with the total control of my hands and my torso.- Charles Gavigan, Galway Ireland"

"Training with Elasticsteel program proved to me that if you train right, you can quickly notice steady results.-Max Deluca San Jose, California"

"I feel that my stretches have helped me more then improve flexibility. I used to get frequent back pain. By making my hips and buttocks looser, I rarely get the pain. When it so happens that I get it, it takes a 2-3 days for it to go away and not weeks.- Nasher Bibi"

"If I would have found this website earlier my flexibility training would have been different and safer. Better late than never.-Frank Wilson Pushmataha, Oklahoma"
"Hi! I am an Italian Elasticsteeler and I've received the book this morning. At the first look I've been surprised by the little size of the book, but after opening it, i've understand why. Unlike many other flexibility books, ES is a concentrate of pratical stuff and techniques.No waste of space, no tedious theory. Today I will begin my training. I like this book."

Splits, Flexibility & Kicking Specific Training


Q. Should I get the Strength & Flexibility Manual or the Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Splits & Flexibility DVD? And really what is the difference between the two?

A. It all depends on what your goal is, and how you absorb the information. Some people are better at reading a book and understanding it's content, while others learn better by following along to a video. 

There are differences between the Strength & Flexibility Manual and the Splits & Flexibility DVD. If you are looking to strictly learn how to do the splits and get flexible, then you should probably purchase the DVD which goes into details and gives you absolutely all the necessary information on how to safely achieve splits and get flexible. While the book covers flexibility and splits as well, it also contains a section on how to get high, powerful kicks. 

Hence, if you are looking to get high powerful kicks and want to learn the basics of getting splits and flexibility then you should get the manual. If you want to get flexible and be able to do splits with ease, then you should purchase the DVD. The DVD doesnít have any information on kick specific training.

If you want the benefits of both worlds then a special DVD & Book combo is the way to go. By purchasing these two items together you will save money and get 5 resistance bands free of charge. For more information please click here.

Q. I'm past 40 and have never been able to do a split in my life. I've tried everything I could possibly get my hands on. Will your program help me, or is it too late? And what makes your method different?

A. It is never too late to become flexible. Yes, the ElasticSteel Method will help you. Why am I so confident? Because I have hundreds of people writing to me everyday telling me about how my method has helped them. But that's not the only reason. You see every person is unique, and everyone needs a specific approach to their training. The reason that ElasticSteel Method is so successful is because you choose what's best for YOUR body. 

Have you ever watched a mixed class of students stretching, in martial arts class? The youngsters who can do the split at the beginning of a class can do it at the end just as well or better. The adults on the other hand who suffer to get into the position at the begging of class still suffer at the end. 

Unfortunately most flexibility challenged donít get more flexible with each passing month. Most of them would, if only they had warmed up properly! Even with those poor quality stretching instruction that are now the norm; "Alright guys, spread you legs. Reach for your left foot and now for the right, and now reach forward. Ok, done with stretching, moving on.Ē Sounds familiar? Unfortunately most instructors are not experts in flexibility. If they were, you would be splitting with ease and not reading about this DVD!

The reason you weren't successful in the past is simply because you were not doing what your body needed. With the ElasticSteel Method you'll become more flexible and be able to do splits with ease, safely. My number one priority is always to make sure that whatever program I put out there is SAFE. I do not promise you to get flexible overnight. Because it is NOT possible. Also, by simply purchasing my books & videos you won't get flexible either. You actually need to work on your flexibility by following what I teach you to do and listening to your body. 

Q. How long will it take me to get a split? 

A. Iíve stated this many times over, there is no one answer to this question. It all depends on your current level of flexibility and how much time and effort youíre ready to put into achieving your lifeís long dream. Most people report increased flexibility within days of trying the method, others say it took them a few weeks to get their splits, still others are reporting itís taking them a few month to achieve full splits. Hence, it all depends on you. On average, it is safe to say that around 6 Ė 8 weeks will get you the results youíre looking for. If you stumble along the way you can always contact me for help or visit the forum weíve put together to keep you on the right track. 

Q. What if after I purchase your products I get confused will you help me? 

A. There is a whole forum dedicated to helping you with ElasticSteel Team and your fellow ElasticSteel Practitioners ready to lend you a helping hand, encourage you and answer any questions you may have about the method. However, should you need my personal assistance, I will be glad to help you, although it may take 3 Ė 4 days for me to get back to you, since I travel extensively. 

Q. How do I know that your method is any good? 

A. The only way to find out is to try it and see for yourself. In the meantime you can read otherís reviews of it on the forum or try googling for reviews. 

Q. It says that the DVD is 2 hours long! I donít have time to devote 2 hours everyday to this program! Will I really have to follow the DVD for 2 straight hours daily!?

A. Absolutely NOT! The reason the DVD is 2 hours long, is because I wanted to give you ALL the information you would possibly ever need to get those splits! I show you every routine imaginable, every trick in the book so that you can safely and steadily reach your goals and keep it up! You do not need to follow the DVD for 2 hours every day. All you need to do is follow the suggested routines outlined in the DVD insert and choose the routine thatís best for YOUR body. Then choose from the DVD menu the part that you should be following and get started! 

Q. Iím a dancer/cheerleader/hockey player will your program help me!?

A. ElasticSteel Method doesnít discriminate what you choose to use your newfound flexibility and splits for. Hence, the answer to this question is a definite YES!

GA or GAM? 

Q. Okay so I am completely confused, what really is the difference between the two? Do both of them contain the same exercises? Is one a continuation of another!? Do I get GA and then GAM? 

A. Gravity Advantage and Gravity Advantage MAX have only one thing in common, both teach you how to utilize your bodyweight only to achieve great strength and build a powerful, muscular body.  

Thereís only one section thatís the same in both books, thatís the joint warm-up routine, the rest is different. Gravity Advantage only targets upper body, with mid-section as stabilization, while Gravity Advantage MAX is a total body, each group together and in isolation, with maximum bodyweight resistance conditioning. 

If you do not have any equipment Gravity Advantage will show you how to workout every muscle in your upper body using only 2 chairs, a stick and a stack of books/two yoga blocks.

Hereís a look at what the book contains:

∑             Eleven joint warm-up exercises.

∑             A Beginning and an Advanced Stretching Routine for the whole body

∑             Twenty four body weight exercises

∑             Four progressive routines containing six exercises each.

These movements build functional strength as well as endurance. Every exercise has a purpose in the sequence.  Sequences are designed for maximum effectiveness of each exercise

Gravity Advantage MAX on the other hand, takes bodyweight exercises to a new level. This book covers your ENTIRE body, isolating each muscle group and giving you a workout of a lifetime. You should have some equipment at home, such as a pull up bar and a dip bar, a bench, etc. as GAM uses common equipment. To read more about what GAM has to offer please click here
