Take a picture of yourself in a forward bend! Are you in spinal flexion or is your back straight? Are your knees bent, straight, or hyperextended? How do your hamstrings and lower back feel?
What movements/activities in life require us to be in a forward bend position (hip flexion)? For example, sitting down in any manner we are in hip flexion. This means all activities in a sitting type of position such as biking, paddling, driving... What else can you think of?
Can you think of any other category of position that we are in a lot?
