Wow.  Impressive. 

How many push-ups can you do? Pull ups?

I'm half-joking. 

It's great that there are  people who can move their arms over every inch of their back.  Strength and flexibility are a fine balance

I wouldn't worry about my strength.  I've got more then enough (and can do pull ups).  Its not really that fine a balance to have both.

OK, I won't worry about your strength. 

I wonder what it's like to have "more than enough" strength.  I'd like to be there one day:)

I taught yoga and pilates for 8 years and I still do some yoga more days than not.  I can't reach every part of my back, and certainly not well enough to rub in lotion or sunscreen.  Maybe I'm just not doing it right.

I suspect genetics has a lot to do with it.  I rarely have to stretch and was actually encouraged by my PT to not stretch my hamstrings too often as I actually needed to tighten them up.  And then I have a friend who does stretch and is so inflexible it's laughable

Squeeze a bunch of sunscreen in the tub. Get naked. Roll around. Going in the sun optional.

Sunscreen, I understand, but I'm still wondering why Switch would need lube on her back? LOL!!!

I'll tell you, but only after Goosedog posts a vid of his technique.  I just can't wrap my head around it...

Same here, and I had some serious shoulder surgery that took away a lot of mobility in my right arm.

My wingspan is a good four inches over my height though (6'1") so that may have something to do with it.

I may not have pre-pubescent hips or breasts and at 36 that would be ridiculous. I do not need to have an "airbrushed body" and why do I revere that?

A lot of us don’t spend too much time worrying about stretching and strengthening exercises for our lower back.
