That used to be one of my favorites. The problem I have now, which I'm wondering how you get around, is that my chin gets in the way. Seriously. The pike is fine, but when I bring my knees down to my ears, then my chin hits my breastbone/ribcage/whatever and I can't go any further. Perhaps I need to be actually stretching something? Because, really, I feel no stretch from that. (The pike, yes, through the backs of my legs.) Mostly what I feel is my chin digging into my chest which is uncomfortable, and the back of my neck pressing into the floor/whatever, which also is uncomfortable. What's going wrong? Edit to add another question... Like I said, I feel no muscle stretch with the knees-to-ears thing. But the other thing I do feel, which can't be good, is what feels like a lot of strain on my spine itself. (This isn't the only time when it feels like my actual spine hurts, btw.) Anyone know what the deal is?
