Hamstrings and Couch

If you have a strong couch, and are fit and confident, try this.

Secure the back of your ankles under the couch. Keep your head, neck and back straight. put your hands behind your head with elbows open. Lower your body one to two feet and return. Primary muscles used are your hamstrings. Stabilizer secondary muscles used are your abdominal muscles. Do this for four sets of ten repetitions.
