How to do it:

  1. Lie on your back and loop a strap across the ball of your right foot.
  2. Straighten your right leg above you and keep your left leg straight off the floor.
  3. Lift right leg only as far as possible without the left hamstring leaving contact with the floor.
  4. Allow the arms to hold the weight of your right leg. Relax and pull your foot towards you with the strap.
  5. Hold for 60 seconds, and pull to greater increments as the hamstring muscle relaxes.
  6. Switch sides.
