1 of 2

Stand tall with your shoulders back and your feet hip distance apart. Hold a detergent bottle in your right hand.

2 of 2

Reach down toward your right knee, bending at the waist and through the spine so your ribs move toward your hip bone. Keep your shoulders facing forward. Pause for a second at the bottom. Use the left side of your waist to pull yourself back to starting position. Repeat five to 10 times before switching sides.
