Man sitting in chair, bending forward between knees to touch floor.

 

To start, sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Shift your weight slightly forward to avoid rounding your back. Relax, and keep your ears, shoulders, and hips aligned.

  • Sit with your feet well apart.

  • Bend forward and touch the floor with the backs of your hands. Relax and let your body drop.

  • Hold for 20 seconds. Return to starting position.

  • Repeat 2 times.
