  1. Stand in a staggered stance while holding the weight in the hand opposite of the forward leg..

  2. Slowly descend until the torso is close to parallel with the ground while keeping the ball of the back foot on the ground.

  3. During the descent, the hips should remain parallel with the ground, NOT tilted in an angle.

  4. Feel for the stretch in the hamstrings, as well as the hamstrings contracting to return to the starting position.
