How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Start off laying flat on your back with one knee bent and the other foot extended out to stabilize your body.

2.) With the bent leg, extend it up in the air so that the sole of your foot is pointed up in the air, placing your clasped hands around the extended leg for support.

3.) Straighten out the leg as much as possible feeling a stretch in your hamstrings, then try to pull it as close as you can towards your nose.

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

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