Text about body training. I don't understand what the position looks like. In the bracket is the preceding text to help you get clearer picture. Thanks!
|English translation:I wish I could draw it for you...|
You sit on the floor, upright, one leg (left) stretched out, the other (right)angled (foot pointing towards you). The opposite hand (left) holds down that leg in the knee area, thus ensuring the entire leg is on the floor and you lean forward, but in the other direction (left).

Die diagonale Hand drueckt das angewinkelte Bein zum Boden, der Oberkoerper beugt sich in die entgegengesetzte Richtung =
(One leg is stretched out straight, one bent). The hand opposite the bent leg presses it down to the floor, the torso is bent in the opposite direction.
This sounds like quite a painful shearing motion - probably very good for you if it hurts :-)
