Craig C 6/7
Being able to touch your toes is a sign of decent flexibility in your hamstrings, calves and back. However, being able to hold this position for an extended period of time demonstrates even better flexibility, as your muscles will re-contract if you do not have the required level of flexibility.
If you attempt and fulfill the following, you have completed the challenge: Sit down with legs straight, bend forwards and touch both feet. Hold for 30 seconds.

“Don't force yourself to overstretch or you will end up tearing ligaments and having to start all over once they're healed. Go slowly and check out yogajournal.com and go to poses/ look up hamstring or leg stretches to help you out. :)”

Laura T Can't even touch my toes! Think I need to get practising! Will it just get easier the more I do it?
Samantha W Can touch my toes easily, holding it for 30 seconds is harder. Managed it but keep praticing
Kevin G Quicker than expected, its been a while since I touched my toes, going to keep this up. Flexibility has never been my strong point, but I am getting better in just a week
Simone B Day 12 - Yay, 30 secs, I finally did it!! Will keep this exercise as part of my regular stretching regime.
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
