  1. Not specifically related to today’s video, but a question about the left knee. I’ve already had 2 ops to repair miniscis tears in the left knee. Now, in learning Paul’s system, I’ve been working on the rotational turn of the lower body and trying to get to a straight left leg. I’ve noticed I’m experiencing some left knee pain again and it feels like it’s connected to the twisting of the left leg as it tries to straighten. Can you recommend a knee/left leg movement, perhaps keeping the knee slightly bent (?), that would be more protective of the left knee. Thanks

    • Gerrie,

      Stop doing it so fast. Do it slowly and build it up. I have a tear in mine and never have an issue unless I do it super fast which I do not do. If it still remains then keep a slight bend in it. I need the hip turning so maybe think of hips instead of locking the knee.

  2. This is really a great stretch. I am incorporating this into my daily stretch routine.

    This really is an excellent stretch, all the way around…I’ve always had tight hamstrings and this stretching “process” is very effective in that area for me…Thx again….

  4. Love the toe touch hip hinge! Not only good for the hamstrings but for me it’s especially good for my lower back. I exercise almost daily and my lower back is always tight and generally sore. Especially in the morning. I started doing this stretch last week and I’m amazed with the results.I tend to hold the bent knee palms flat on the floor position for 10-15 seconds to really stretch my lower back. I hope that’s okay. Thanks for the great advice. Keep it up!

  5. What if you can not bend over enough to come near touching the floor due to age? Have not been able to touch toes for over 20 years.

    Good movement, I was not about put my palms on the ground but I got my fingers, this will be my goal, def helps to reduce waist size. Do you have exercise to increase front and back rotation?
