It all began with a video shared by Jax Kranitz, a University of Iowa student who does gymnastics and dance. With this move, the subject lies on the floor with their hands linked around their back. From there, participants have to swing their legs around and strand right up. What could be easier?

Despite the flexibility requirements, that hasn’t stopped plenty of people from giving it their all.

Kids are mastering the feat a lot better, it appears. Bless them.
