Touch Your Toes…and Go Beyond!

Why Start with the Forward Fold?

The Forward Fold – also known as the Pike Stretch, Uttanasana, or simply the Standing Toe Touch – is a universal shape trained to improve flexibility, regardless of the discipline or the era.  This shape has notable athletic carryover for everything from weightlifting to dance to martial arts.  Being able to hinge well at your hips is also key for everyday mobility – it lessens stress on your lowback and allows you to reach down with ease.

This position has a certain simplicity compared to others like the splits. This ‘straightforward’ nature (pun intended) does not mean it lacks nuance. Since the forward fold stretches the entire posterior chain, limitations can be felt not just in the hamstrings, but in other point along your legs or back. Our programming isolates sections of the chain, allowing us to address your unique limiting factors and unlock your flexibility quickly.

Don’t take our word for it, here are the results of dedicated training under the Modern Methods of Mobility:

What You Get

Access the Forward Fold online program in our Members Area.  Unlike other online programs, which often end up being just a few YouTube videos or a DIY Excel Spreadsheet – with M3 you get desktop and mobile optimized online programs with video tutorials and written reference material.  And for ease of access at the gym, you can download interactive PDFs of the training templates which link to the online exercise library videos.

Touch Your Toes or Your Money Back

We’re confident that through training our methods, even the stiffest person will be able to gain the ability to touch their toes upon completing the Forward Fold program.  If you complete the full 90 day routine and still cannot reach your toes, we’ll refund your program purchase in full.

How We’ll Improve Your Mobility

This course aims to develop the maximum potential of your forward fold over three program phases. Each phase takes a different approach, targeting common limitations along your posterior chain and within your hips to break through the sticking points in your range of motion.

Phase 1
The first phase develops your ability to hinge at your hips. This phase also strengthens your hamstrings and hip flexors while loosening your calves and strengthening in preparation for phase two.

Phase 2
The second phase exposes any imbalances between your legs’ respective ranges of motion. It further strengthens the hip flexors in the deepest positions for the forward fold and introduces rounding the back for the head-first method used in phase three.

Phase 3
The third phase uses the head-first method through the Jefferson Curl, a novel way to further develop your forward folding ability.

What Makes M3 Different?

The M3 System avoids the dogma of other training methods by taking bigger picture view of flexibility development and reconciling all the conflicting information about correct flexibility training. It focuses on finding what works for the person doing the training versus having a one size fits all approach. We believe strongly that anybody can develop exceptional flexibility with the right combination of correct methods and consistent training.

I’m a bit heavyset, will this program still get me to touch my toes?2022-12-06T18:21:51+00:00

Without seeing your build we can’t say with certainty if you’d be physically limited in touching your toes.  But in our experience insufficient posterior chain flexibility is the vastly more common limitation in the forward fold (or any positions for that matter) than weight or physical stature.

I can already touch my toes, is there anything for me in this program?2022-12-06T18:16:17+00:00

Even if you can touch your toes, this program will level up your forward fold to your physical limit!  Go from touching your toes to palms to the ground, and even further by elevating feet and reaching past your toes!  We outline how to advance into a deeper pike in the self assessment portion of the program.

I have chronic pain/some nagging injuries. Can I still train the M3 programs?2022-11-23T19:57:05+00:00

There are a variety of levels within our programs assigned by the results of the program self assessments.  We recommend that you train the level you can perform without pain, which might change depending on the state of your body.  While everyone’s physical state is unique, hopefully over time you level-up through our programs and your pain becomes more manageable.  If any particular exercise causes pain, you are always welcome to modify the program by training an earlier progression or skipping it entirely.

Can I incorporate M3 Programs into my current training regiment?2022-07-15T18:32:40+01:00

Yes, we discuss how to include the M3 Programs into your current training routine. We discuss a variety of ways to accommodate busy schedules, avoiding overtraining, and keep you from compromising your other fitness goals to incorporate our programming.

What equipment is required?2022-05-05T01:00:14+01:00

Our programs do make use of light dumbbells, dowels, exercise bands, and other equipment that is generally found in most gyms.  Open floorspace, slick floor/sliders, and soft ground/mats are also needed.  If you are training at home there are suggested modifications for exercises that use weightlifting equipment.

Are there prerequisites for M3 online programs?2022-07-15T18:30:06+01:00

Nope, these programs are for anyone looking to become more mobile! All exercises in our programs are scalable to individual capabilities.
