7. Hamstring Stretch

Stand straight and keep a stable object about a foot high directly in front of you. Raise one leg and place it on this elevated surface with your toes pointing upward and the leg straight, but without locking the knee. Lean forward over the raised leg, keeping the spine straight. When you are as far forward as you can go, breathe deeply and hold the position for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat on the other side.
