    Extend one leg and pull the opposite knee across your body while keeping your shoulder blades pinned to the floor. Extend your arm and turn your head to look away from the side you are twisting toward. Keep the other hand holding the knee. Hold for one minute and then return to starting position to repeat in the opposite direction.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Avoid pulling too strongly. Ease into every stretch.
