Oooh
Splits are hard.
They aren’t really my area of strength— I’m flexible in the back more than I am the legs, but I could help.
First things first, are stretches. Stretch before and after. Stretches help prevent pulled and torn muscles, which happen quite frequently.
Good static stretches for splits:

Make sure you stretch before and after practicing
Don’t expect to master the splits immediately— It took me months to learn how to backbend and touch my head to the ground. Flexibility is something that comes with time.

Injuries can happen during splits— Though it is uncommon, anything worse than a tear.
Also make sure you wear the right clothes
