    I'm just asking because my right leg is at almost 135° when I'm using active flexibility to raise my leg and my left is just over 90 even though I do it more on my left. I'm not sure why, because my right is only a little more flexible.

    I've heard the phrase "Build strength in your end-range of motion" and was wondering if my right is so strong because I've been holding the splits for a minute these past months to maintain (not much of a stretch is felt) while I'm working on my other splits.

    Try negatives, or try putting it in the 130deg range, and getting to hold it there.

    An example would be sitting in a pike, and trying to lift your legs off the floor.

    Imbalances are common. Your body isn't perfectly symmetrical in a lot of ways. Don't worry too much about it. Keep going with your routine and be patient.
