Stand tall with back straight, feet wider than the hips, and arms at your sides. Turn from the waist to face your right leg.
Bend forward from the waist, placing your hands on your right thigh for support, until your back is flat. Think of reaching your chin out towards the floor in front of your right foot.
Breathe deeply and hold for 10-30 seconds. Repeat on opposite side.
Stretch to the point of "mild discomfort," not to the point of pain. Never bounce. Keep your abs engaged to protect your back. Bend your knees, if necessary, to decrease the intensity of this stretch.
