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.

Recent advice

“If you're having trouble reaching, slightly bend your knees to the point where you can grip your toes, then slowly extend the legs till they are straight. A neat trick for those with shorter arms/torso.”

Merry S Touch your toes with legs straight Challenge

Merry S One thing to keep in mind. In order for the hamstrings to "release" the quads must be engaged! So make sure you are flexing those quads when reaching for the toes! (Also helps protect your knees, as flexing the quads raises your knee caps.) I know this might seem like "duh" but I have really been focusing on this and the stretch has been SOOOO much better. :)
