Setup instructions

1) Stand tall with legs shoulder width apart and a slight bend in the knees. Keep the chest up, core and glutes tight.

2) Place both hands on opposite shoulders and hinge forward from the hips. You're aiming for your back to be at a 45 degree angle. It's important to keep the back flat at all times.

Perform instructions

1) Bend your knees and push them back to the original position. Every time you do this, you should feel a slight stretch at the back of your legs.

Note: Don't lock out (hyper extend) your knees when you push back. Still have a slight bend in this position.
