  • Stand next to a chair, fold forward, and place your palms flat on the floor about six inches in front of the chair's legs. One at a time, place your knees on the seat of the chair. You can rest your toes or the top of your feet on the back of the chair.
  • Make sure your arms are straight and your shoulders are directly above your hands. When you're ready, bend your elbows, lowering your shoulders toward the floor. Then straighten your arms. Don't worry if you can only lower a few inches. As you practice this exercise, you'll be able to lower farther.
  • Repeat as many times as you can, working up to a set of 20.

Have you ever done these? They're killer!
