I cannot bend over to touch my toes. In fact it gets tight when my hands get down to my knees. When I try to bend like this all the tension and pain is felt at the back of my knees – is this normal?
Also a friend told me to do the following stretch. Sit down on the floor and place the feet, which knees and ankles together, on a chair and then try to put the chin on the knees. The ankle between the calves and the thighs is about 90-100 degrees, and the back is more or less upright. What does this actually stretch – I’m guessing the hamstrings but I’m not sure?
