Move Targets: Hamstrings
Step 1: Stand with your feet at shoulder distance, toes pointing straight ahead and place your hands behind your head (or at your sides). Keep the knees soft instead of locked.
Step 2: Hinge at your hips and drop the chest to the floor. Keep a nice flat or slightly arched back. The weight should shift into the heels and at the bottom of the movement, you should be able to wiggle your toes. Notice how your hips will go behind the heels and how your knees are slightly bent. Exhale, push into the heels and lift the chest up as you completely extend the hips to the front.
