He shared the clip of when he injured himself during his ‘fancy dress Friday’ session, which saw him hilariously dressed up as Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear.
In the video, Joe could be seen running around his room and jumping into the air before skilfully leaping into both a forwards and backwards roly-poly.
But the fitness sensation seemed to have overestimated his flexibility as he attempted to jump straight down into the forwards splits and sideways splits.
While attempting the side splits, he could be heard squealing in alarm and rolling across the floor clutching his upper leg in agony.

But the show had to go on for Joe because he was live-on-air hosting his latest batch of PE lessons during the painful accident.
Admitting his injury on Instagram afterwards, he penned: ‘Heee heeee! Shamone. Legit pulled my hammy doing PE with Joe this morning.
‘Fancy dress Friday NOTE TO SELF: You can’t actually do the full splits Joe.’
The YouTube star also took to his Instagram stories to solemnly speak about his hamstring injury, while still dressed in his fancy dress outfit.
Joe revealed that he ‘believed’ he could do the full splits because dressing as Buzz Lightyear made him believe he could achieve it.

Appearing downtrodden, he explained: ‘Twanged my hammy didn’t I. I believe in my head that I can do things I can’t, I believed in my head I could do the full splits.’
His latest fiasco comes after he accidentally broke wind during a PE With Joe class on Wednesday, not realising that he was live on air.
Taking to his stories on Friday, he admitted that his ‘fart-gate’ video has become his most popular video since he joined Instagram back in May 2013.
Joe said that despite sharing more than 10,000 posts and racking up four million followers, it is the video of him farting that has become the most engaged with post.
He quipped that he has learnt that all he needs to do is ‘fart more’ during his fitness videos, rather than tirelessly filming and ‘putting so much content up’.
Oh dear! But the fitness sensation seemed to have overestimated his flexibility as he attempted to jump down into two sets of forwards splits and sideways splits

The fitness coach explained: ‘The fart-gate yesterday has now become my most ever engaged post.
‘So it’s taken me an accidental fart on a YouTube live to have that many comments on a post. I’ve shared 10,000 posts and I’ve just hit four million followers.
‘All that work – the recipes in my kitchen, all the holidays when I was filming, when I was injured and just putting so much content up – and it took a fart to become the most engaged post ever.
‘So what I’ve learnt is fart more, let it out, open up to it and just be honest.’
Joe also revealed that his Instagram stories video, where he discussed accidentally breaking wind on YouTube, has racked up his highest ever stories view in one day.
His hilarious mishap did not go unnoticed as the video where he candidly discussed the ’embarrassing’ moment managed to secure 841,205 views in just 24 hours.

The Body Coach star previously admitted that he had accidentally ‘let rip’ on Tuesday’s episode of Mark Wright’s Evening Show on Heart.
He hilariously admitted he was ‘so embarrassed’ as he had let out the ‘longest ripper’ he has ever done in his life during PE With Joe.
Joe revealed that he has now even asked his friend to edit the video as he can’t ‘have that living on there forever’.
He admitted: ‘I’m so embarrassed by what’s happened today. Basically, I filmed my first P.E with Joe yesterday, live at 9am, right.
‘I pressed the live button just on my YouTube stream, and just before, I’m talking 20 seconds before, something slipped out Mark… and you can guess what it will be Mark…’

Confession: Joe also told host Mark (pictured) that he has now even asked his friend to edit the video as he can’t ‘have that living on there forever’
To which Mark quipped: ‘How did it happen Joe? Because I’m looking at it, you’re so professional with your [YouTube] lives and stuff, you’re incredible with what you do, but how did you make the mistake?
‘Did you already press “live” and you didn’t know you were live? What went wrong?’
With Joe explaining: ‘No, listen 800,000 people have seen that video. I didn’t know. When you go live, you press live and there’s about a 20 seconds delay but for some reason the link had opened and it was buffering and it basically got the sound.
‘So I’ve let out this giant – honestly, the longest ripper I’ve ever let out in my life. I didn’t realise it was live so I’ve done the ripper, “Ooo, 5,4,3,2,1”, I jumped in and I only found out today.’
Mark was quick to reassure the fitness star as he added: ‘Oh incredible, but listen you’re so good with the kids and kids love a trump. I mean my little cousins, I’m always trumping in front of them.
Oh dear! Joe said: ‘I pressed the live button just on my YouTube stream, and just before, I’m talking 20 seconds before, something slipped out Mark… and you can guess what it will be Mark…’ (pictured during said workout)
‘They go “Mark, Mark, Mark, trump!” because it is the best noise, and it makes us laugh. As my Nana always says, “Wherever you may be, let your wind run free. Church or chapel, let your old… rattle.”‘
Yet despite being left embarrassed, Joe admitted he has seen the funny side and noted how hilarious the comments are.
He said: ‘Well that’s what happened! And I tell you what, some of the comments are hilarious!
‘I’ve got to be honest, I’ve gone back to the video and got my mate to edit it out because I can’t have that living on there forever.’
Awkward! ‘So I’ve let out this giant – honestly, the longest ripper I’ve ever let out in my life. I didn’t realise it was live so I’ve done the ripper, “Ooo, 5,4,3,2,1”, I jumped in and I only found out today,’ he confessed (the start of Joe’s workout where he broke wind)
