Setup instructions

1) Start with a high anchor point and attach the suspension strap - it should be mid length.

2) Take a few back steps (about a foot or two) and lean back slightly - you're aiming for the strap to support you in this position.

3) Keep the handles close to your chest and shoulder height - elbows face forward and down.

4) Lift your right leg up slightly.

Note: It's a slight lean back. You should have full control of the movement.

Perform instructions

1) Bend your left knee and extend your right leg to be fully straight - the right heel should have contact with the floor. You should feel a stretch throughout your right leg.

2) Sit into the stretch and hold it there until the end of the timer.
