Can You Touch Your Toes?

Not being able to touch your toes is usually a result of poor flexibility in either your hamstrings or lower back, or both.  A good way to increase your flexibility to help you to touch your toes is to stretch your hamstrings regularly. 

Seated Hamstring Stretch

Step 1

Sit on the floor with your legs extended with your toes pointing to the ceiling. Engage your core to stabilize you spine and rest your hands on your thighs.

Step 2

Flex forward at your hips as you slide your hands down your legs toward your feet. Try to keep your back flat and avoid bending your knees. Pause when you feel tension in your calves and hamstrings. Hold for 20 seconds.

Step 3

Slowly release the stretch and return to the starting position. Repeat two to three times.
