  4. Alexis Willoughby says:

    Y’all are something else. You can’t not have a spine. You would just flop. I doubt you could even live without a spine.

    When it was showing the Beighton score it showed “elbow bending backward” and I was like I was born that way as a double jointed person so am I hypermoble? like it’s so easy to do that, honestly just tell me to stick my elbow out and boom.

  24. Fireball XL5 says:

    Big question!!! Should you stretch hot or cold? As in before you do any exercise at all in the muscles you are stretching or should you work out a bit and "warm them up" first?

  25. Ciao Yoga says:

    Yin yoga is based exactly on these concepts ????

    5:15 put that all in a pill and I'll buy it.

  35. PAPA DANKI says:

    As a yogi (a calisthenics and yoga athlete)
    I would say that 5-10min a week are not enough.
    I only get my splits after doing 3 intense sessions a week of 15-20 min of hamstring stretching.
    So what I'm saying is, everybody is different and needs different durations which can be more or less than 10min.

  36. Julian says:

    Went to Sofie's channel, her talents are way beyond her super hyperflexibility which is only a launching pad. She has it all and I say, well done!

    Could you imagine telling people. " I'm a contortionist ''

  56. Anita Poupa says:

    I have an autoimmune form of arthritis where my joints, tendons and ligaments all get attacked by my immune system. I am so grateful that I started yoga right before I suffered a flare up of epic proportions that lasted 2 years. Stretching was all I could really do until I found a medication that actually helped me (the 5th medication I tried, and had to try them all for a few months each). Despite the rheumatic flare, I still managed to gain flexibility. Slowly, but I am more flexible now that I have ever been in my life. If I can do it, pretty much anyone can do it!

  57. Fou LaPaix says:

    Very silly . Was expecting more. Waste of my time

  58. Liquid Multiverse says:

  62. Another Random Person says:

    Life hack!: You can just break your back, and then you cat stretch your paralysed bottom-half back over your head

  63. Constitutional Patriot says:

    Contortionist do a lot of long term damage to her body, cartilage doesn't grow back and stretching to extremes and repetitive movement and extreme range of motion does unfixable damage. She will feel it when she is old. Ask any old martial artist

  64. Hunter Williams says:

    Finally I can fold myself like a napkin!

  65. Ariel-plays x3 says:

    So today I saw this video and at 0:00 I saw what Sofie did so I did it AND IT Work

  66. Hoosier Daddy, Boy says:

    Adding sarcomeres? No, I don't think so. Hyperplasia is not supported in human tissue. Stretching changes is mostly neurological changes.

  67. Chips O'Tool says:

    You can live a long, full life without being able to do any of this junk. How often do you really need to put your feet on your head?

  68. Josh From Jersey says:

    Nice feet physics girl!

    Aloha Hola Heehaw Whassup and How are Ye!

  73. 13ask13 says:

    This is the exact infomation I struggled to find on speciliazed fitness channels. Thank you!

  74. zoo bear says:

    she be like as a physicist i dont know anything about stretching
    i dont recall it being physical…….oh wait

  75. Rebekah L says:

    I have classical ehlers-danlos and this was so helpful. She needs to be careful though. When you get older, all that stretchiness comes back at you with dislocations and pain

  76. Walter Messines says:

    Check out Lajin. The healing aspects of stretching.

  77. Kia E says:

    Awesome, thanks! My son is double jointed or hyper flexible. It's an amazing think to see all the insane positions he can pretzel his body into.

  78. griplimit says:

    I must have only type 1 collagen because I’m the exact opposite of flexible. Seriously, I always win in arm wrestling because my arm won’t bend back.

  79. KermyCraft says:

    She sounds like someone who would say everything a man says is mansplaining

  80. John Karavitis says:

    Static stretching and holding is the WORST thing you can do. You NEVER find yourself posing in a specific position and then staying there. Your body is always moving, so when you stretch, you should bounce back to your starting position. Your brain detects the damage done by a static hold, and it doesn't want to get damaged in the future, so it makes your muscles NOT activate so that you go near that first static stretch/hold. You see this, and struggle against it, creating even more damage to your muscles.

  81. Gabb says:

    after 2 years of 5-10minutes of stretching a day, you will notice differences

  82. Geonhee Park says:


  83. Mike Coshan says:

    If Sofie went to prison I’m sure she would have no problem doing a long stretch ? ( yes I know it’s bad but it’s a Sunday)

  84. Peter Lappalainen says:

    How about stretching ”cold” vs warmed up?

  85. IzThat it says:

    Good, a video with scientific evidence that you can't do "anything." Some people are just exceptional.

    If a person like Sophie was to have children with someone like Dwayne Johnson there is a higher than normal chance they'd produce a super human.

  86. Cara Macaan says:

    Omg she is gorgeous??

  87. Patrick Thibaut says:

    Does Sofie take naps? I saw in a program that really flexible people have weaker tendons and ligaments. To keep their joints from dislocating they have to compensate for this with constant muscle tension. Hence they get tired.

  88. Andreous Stacey says:

    So Sophie seems like a whole lot of fun dosent she?

  90. Isak s says:

    so i get 4 out of 9 on that test on how hypermobile i am. my little fingers can bend at over 90 degrees backwards, i can touch my left thumb to the inside of my forearm and i can easily bend down with straight legs and touch the floor with both my palms whilst having bent arms (i can pretty much fold myself in half and lay my upper body onto my legs without a problem

  91. code_dredd says:

    Interesting. It's almost as if the body is… a well-designed biological machne.

  92. Clif Keens says:

    I know what seeing THIS stretching does to my body.

  93. Steven says:

    I so want to sleep with Sophie…LOL

  95. Mikael Nilsson says:

    This defies Physics, its black magic i tell you!

  96. John Mcconnell says:

    As someone who has marfins I can also do some things that are considered hyper flexible, such as bending my limbs into any position.

  97. mwoz87 says:

    The thumbnail is exactly how i stretch every day. Someone please help me I am stuck upside down now.

  98. PQOW says:
