- Sit on floor or mat with legs apart and knees straight.
- Reach toward one foot or bring torso toward one leg. Hold
stretch for 20 seconds. Repeat with opposite leg.
- Alternatively, leg not being stretched can be bent so sole
of foot is next to stretched thigh. Keep knee of stretched leg
straight by tensing Quadriceps.
Knees may inadvertently bend if feet are extended off of thick
mat or bench. Spine may be kept straight. Pelvis may be tilted
forward to intensify stretch.
