I am happy to play my part and provide some new evidence to the research and confirm that hamstrings actually also get handed down when genes are being mucked about with in the womb.
Mr H can barely sit on the floor to play lego. FiL Huey often laughs that he has never been able to sit with his legs crossed, even as a child. I myself have a fear of yoga classes as my hamstrings act like a piece of wood and do not stretch, bend or mould no matter which way I try to breathe.
Watching the little Hueys at dance class last week it become very clear that they have been burdened with the Curse of the Stiffie Hamstring.
The touch your toes exercise was only completed with some major bending of knees.
The splits seem a very distant goal.
Might be time to start doing some home stretches.
For those of you blessed with elastic hammies - you don't know how lucky you are.
