Step 1: Grab Your Leg and Pull It Up by Your Waist

Step 2: Put One Hand a Little Bit Above Your Ankle and the Other Hand Grabbing Below Your Toes

Step 3: Pull Your Leg Up and Around Until It Is Stretching Above Your Head

<p>You forgot to write what magic words you have say to get from step two to step three. That's assuming you can get to step Two without toppling over!</p>
Step 4 - call an ambulance ;) Good Instructable!
<p>For me that would already be step 3 - ouch.</p>
<p>me too :3</p>
<p>pretty sure step ONE would lead being driven to the hospital with a busted knee.</p><p>I think the dog has the right idea. Find somewhere warm and comfortable to sit/lay. Then give that exact look to anyone attempting to get you to try this.</p><p>GG, don't get discouraged by us old folks. We're just cranky cause we didn't get our naps and meds :-)</p>
<p>lol all you have to do is try!! I would love to see pictures of you all attempting this </p>
<p>Lol, that would be a rather undignified picture! I studied Tang Soo Do when I was a teen. One of our warm-up stretches was to sit on the floor, one leg extended and the other tucked in, then reach forward and grasp the toes of the extended foot. At that time I was able to lean all the way forward and put my forehead on my knee. I remember hearing all the grunting and groaning all around the room and thinking, &quot;How does a person let themself get that way?&quot;....</p><p>Well, now I'm there, lol.</p><p>But really, good Instructable! I don't recall anyone else posting a how-to on gymnastics... that's pretty cool! And seriously keep up with it! It will keep you from getting like the rest of us ;)</p>
<p>Lol that sounds hard! Thanks! I think I saw one or two people doing gymnastics instructibles, and that's what inspired me me to do one. :) </p><p>But I definitely am going to keep doing gymnastics, as I want to be a gymnastics instructor when I get older. </p>
<p>and thanks for the awesome comment!!!!! </p><p>If anyone has something gymnastics/ dance related that they want me to post, I will make an instructible on it. Well, if I know how to do it. :)</p>
<p>Actually I'm mid 50s and practice Shotokan since more than 10 years now. Before that absolutely no sports for more than 30 years. Meanwhile I have the 4th Kyu (which is not too bad at all) and I know that my rusted joints will do it to step one. But even step 2 is sketchy for me. Would probably be different if I did not have that sports-pause in between ;-)</p>
