    As a beginner, you can definitely feel the effect that this exercise has on your hamstrings. Just keep in mind that the objective isn't to actually touch your toes, but to put activity on your legs. Those that are unable to touch their toes like myself can still benefit from extended periods of time doing this activity. If you're generally new to maintaining fitness, this is a good workout to start with.
