• Start in standing, with feet about shoulder width apart. Maintain a neutral spine.
  • Begin the exercise by shifting weight back into the heels, reaching behind you with your butt as if searching for your seat. Continue shifting weight posteriorly, while maintaining your back in neutral, forward bending at the hips until tension is felt in the hamstrings.
  • Return to start position, paying attention to maintaining neutral as you go. You are finished once you’ve achieved full hip extension.
