this is my unorthadox way that i practiced with.
find yourself a chair or a couch or any stationary object that you can put your front leg on for support while standing with the other leg... then, try to move your back foot thats standing on the floor as far back as you possibly can until it hurts.
obviously both legs have to be straight otherwise it defeats the purpose of the exercise.
while you are doing this, lean forward and try to grab your toes on your front foot, you dont have to actually grab the toes but it stretches your muscles even more thats all.
rotate so that both sides of your feet can alternate as the front and back foot
overtime you will get so good at it, you can just do the splits on the bed and at that point its just fine-tuning...
