Hardest toe to crack?



  • Wow - i find that the second toe is also very easy.

    However, like after i come out of the shower, it is very hard to crack.



  • @AquaLiz:

    LOL for me the big toe and little toe are the easiest. The other three are the harder ones.

    no first two are easiest for me!



  • And also it seems recently it is harder to crack left toes than right.



  • That funny long one next to the big toe most often resists cracking –-

    that little rascal!

    you just have to push it a bit harder i found.
    it hurts though!



  • Don't think i've ever cracked my little toe whilst knowing about it. The big toe is the second hardest to do, but feels so good because it's a big joint!

    little toe HURTS! lol!



  • for me both of the end toes prove a challenge. :P



  • How funny! lol My little toe is easiest, only because it has one crack only. My three mid-toes all crack two places, which require a twisting motion, which in turn takes me to my big toe- this is an everlasting clunk that drives my boyfriend insane.



  • Mine has to be my index toe. It feels the best when i crack it though :P



  • The big toe! I don't remember ever being able to crack it :P
    The others all crack once I curl them and push against the floor with
    my bare foot…o* g best feeling ever.



  • The big toe isn't as bendy and thus doesn't curl as well as the other toes - maybe that's why you're not getting a crack out of it using that method.

    Here's my big toe cracking method:

    1. Grasp the toe by putting the thumb from your opposite hand (so right toe you'd use your left thumb) over the toenail, and index finger on the underside of the toe (so making a "sandwich" out of the big part of your big toe).

    2. In one motion while grasping toe, use fingers to bend head of the toe downwards while forcefully stretching it out. Basically grasp, bend, pull/stretch.

    This can crack both the main big toe joint (PIP) AND the MTP joint - the "knuckle" that's on the base of the foot. For me, that's a hugely satisfying pop.

    The other method is to take the middle finger of the opposite hand (so again, right toe left middle finger), lay the middle part of my middle finger across the toenail, and use the finger to bend the toe down while pressing firmly.

    For me, this method produces a smaller, less dramatic pop (and generally only cracks the PIP joint) so it's not my preferred way of going about things. But I'll give it a try if the first way doesn't work.

    Hope this helps - my big toe was my first joint to crack, so it has a special fondness to my disgusting cracker's heart :wink:



  • I crack my big toes by bending them sideways/outwards away from my foot. Its the best feeling ever lol
