Touch your toes with legs straight

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.
