Yep, sorry, wasn’t very clear.

Basically, if I do this:

I can get my knees a fair bit in front of my toes with a decent amount of ankle dorsiflexion. I’d estimate 8-10″ in front of my knees.

But if I do this:


I can only get my front knee about one inch in front of my toes. If I stretch out straight as in the first picture and then try to bend my knee, I feel a pinch of tightness in my ankle and just can’t go lower or retain the amount of forward position. Also if I do the second stretch in a way that’s not dependent upon the hip, that makes no difference.

Thanks!
