Hamstring and Lower Back Stretch

Description:

This exercise is designed to work your hamstring, but also stretches the lower back.

Instructions:

1

Start by sitting on the floor with legs stretched out. Bend left knee in so that your foot is resting on the inside of your right leg.

2

Exhale and reach your right arm forward towards your right leg and touch your toes. Depending on your flexibility you may need to bend a little at the knee. You can also grab your ankle or back of your calf if grabbing your toes is too difficult. Hold this for 3-5 seconds and switch legs.
