A leg exercise for the hamstring.

Stand with your feet shoulder or hip-width apart. Throughout the exercise maintain the Neutral Spine Position, Shoulder Blades in the Butterfly position, keep your head up.

Holding a weight in either hand (Denise has 3Kg in each hand) slowly bend forwards from your hips, letting gravity pull your arms down towards your thighs (and beyond if you can bend further, while still keeping your legs straight). Feel the stretch in your hamstrings, the back of your thighs.

When you have reached your full extension without over-stretching, hold the position for 2 seconds, then slowly raise your upper body back into a standing position, letting your arms fall back by your sides.
