How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Start by standing up straight with your feet shoulder width apart and your arms at your sides.

2.) Place one leg behind you, slowly lower your torso down towards the floor and with your hands reach down onto your front leg.

3.) Stretch down as much as possible so that you feel a stretch in your hip flexor and hamstrings.

4.) Hold to this position for 15 to 30 seconds and return back to the starting position.

5.) Repeat for as many reps, sets, and duration as desired.
