After stretching both hamstring muscles with the above stretches, place both hands on the floor in front of you. Important: Keep the legs straight, and the toes pulled back towards you. Slowly release the tension in your groin muscles and let your legs slide out to the sides. Push from the heels. Keep the front of the feet in contact with the floor. Note that the body weight is held up by the arms. You can release more weight into your legs as your are able to. DO NOT hold your breath. Go slow. It is easy to tear a muscle or tendon in this position. Get out of the position slowly if you feel a tear, pain or discomfort that does not feel like stretching.
