    Can you touch them? Without bending your knees?

    I'm really fascinated in seeing how many of you can and can't.

    Nope, never have been able to. Even when I was healthy and actively dancing every day I have never been able to. I personally blame my height. My arms are just not long enough to make that distance.

      Aggressively locking my knees, no.

      Without aggressively locking them, in other words "naturally straight" with their normal slight kink then apparently I can, just, but I bloody hurt now thank you very much :cry:

          I can touch my toes. It took some practice to make it clean and easy, but yep, I can do it. And I'm not sure whether it's about arm length, because to me it really seems to boil down to three areas - hips, back and the rear of my knees.

          I know two people who can't do it, and when I see them try all I notice is that their backs don't look right and something to do with their hip joints is hindering them. I try and shove them down but it doesn't work. They just run away. One would think it was the first rung of good flexibility, but nope. Tom Holland -dancer, gymnast and actor- can't do it so maybe some people just can't.

          Ah, I was going to give a health warning but then I became mad with power - the power to make people injure themselves from thousands and thousands of miles away. Sorry.

            Aren't you like a midget though, so no surprise really.

            I can indeed touch my toes with my fingers. I do however have to bend the knees slightly to get the palms flat on the floor...

                If you stretch daily, you should be able to attain what you had lost.

                  I can proudly claim I can touch my toes without issues. My short height might have something to do with it though.

                    Has anyone ever told you the tragedy of Darth Amsin the Wise? Probably not. It's not a story the moderators would tell you. It's a Toe legend. Darth Amsin was a Dark Lord of the Toe, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence other people into hurting themselves through trying to touch their toes without bending their knees. He had such a knowledge of the Dark Side, he could even keep the ones he cared about from touching their toes...

                    I'm going to start a backflip thread and wreak new havoc.

                    If I haven't stretched/warmed up my hamstring, basically this lol
                    but if I hang out in that position for a while, it gets easier and more comfortable

                      Ack, I almost touched the ground with my palms but my knees tried to strangle me. More practice - I need to be able to do it by tomorrow so I can flaunt my flexibility to the northern Italian waitress. I'll catch her when she swoons and it'll all be very impressive.

                      Glad to see that the Easies are on step ahead of the Nopes, though.

                        I tried just now and got the palms to the floor with my knees locked in place. This is after my training though, I don't think I can just do it without having warmed up first.
