This exercise stretches your hip and thigh muscles and strengthens your arm and leg muscles.

  1. Bring the bottoms of your feet together, then draw them as close to your body as you can.
  2. Cup your hands under your knees.
  3. Press your knees toward the floor. At the same time, resist that force by pulling upward with your hands. Do this while slowly counting to 3. Relax.
  4. Gradually increase the number of presses you do per day. A good goal is 10 times, twice daily.
