    you should include more warm-ups because many people need a varition of warm-ups before they are warm enough to do the splits.

    You can't actually call that a split since your back leg is bent - splits are supposed to be straight legs. And also, you have to mention the point that you might not be able to achieve the splits at once, but through proper daily routines of warmups, stretches and flexibility exercises you can achieve over a certain period of time. Trying to split your legs too far without proper guidance might snap your joints/bones.

    Please update your tutorial to include a proper warm up. You should run around a large area for 10 minutes minimum to get your blood pumping because stretching "cold" is a sure fire way to get an injury (think muscle tears or serious cramps). It's best to sit in a pike position on the floor (back straight, legs straight in front of you, toes pointed, knees together, ankles together) and stretch your hands towards your toes. This will help the back of your legs to achieve the position required. (Don't slouch!)
    I was a gymnastics coach for 6 years. If you really want to do the splits, it's best to go to a trained coach to avoid injuries. Stretching your body in dramatic ways should be done carefully, and over a long period of time.

    Please be careful- you only have one body!
