Move Targets: Hip Opener, IT Band
Step 1: In a seated position, bend both knees, stacking one leg on top of the other. Try to get the shins parallel with each other. Lift the chest. If you want a deeper stretch, press down into your sit bones and lean forward. If your weight comes out of the hips, stop and move the stretch back about an inch. Switch legs. Note: This may not be a comfortable exercise for someone with knee problems.
