Quick Reference

An exercise that develops the muscles at the back of the thighs (hamstrings) and buttocks (gluteals).

▪ Go down on your hands and knees, keeping your back rounded and chin tucked in. Bring your right knee forward so that it can almost touch your head. Push your right leg slowly and gently backwards so that it is fully extended and parallel to the floor. Hold the extended position for a few seconds. Return to the starting position, pause for a few seconds and repeat the exercise with your left leg. Throughout the exercise, take care to ensure that your back is not arched and that your hips remain facing the floor.
