How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Start off by standing up straight, with your feet shoulder width apart next to either a smith machine or support structure.

2.) Bend slightly with your knees, place one arm across your chest and use the other to hold onto the support.

3.) Slowly lower your body backward, while raising your heels off of the ground, squatting down until you feel a stretch in your hamstrings and hold for a count.

4.) Return back to the starting position.

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