1 of 1

1. Place your right foot, with knee bent, on your bed. Keep your left leg straight behind you and left foot on the ground. Then push your hips forward, but don’t let your right knee jut over your front toes. Hold for five seconds. 2. Then, straighten your upper back as you lift and flex your right toes toward yourself. Hinge slightly forward at your hips so you feel a mild stretch up the back of your leg. Don’t let your back round forward. Hold for five seconds. Repeat three times, then switch legs.
