HOW: Begin by lying face up with your arms wrapped around both of your legs. You can begin with your arms behind your thigh or around your shin. Next, pull your knee into your chest as far as you feel comfortable. Placing your hands around your shin will allow for a deeper stretch.
FEEL: You should feel a stretch in the back of your hip with this exercise. You may feel a bit of a stretch into your low back as well.
COMPENSATION: Keep your back flat and neck relaxed while holding your knees up to your chest.
