Stretch Band and Chair for Hamstrings

Sit on a steady chair with a hard cushion. Place your stretch band around your right ankle and then attach your stretch band on one end to a steady surface like a beam. While keeping your upper body and hips steady, bend your right knee slowly until your ankle is near or beyond (according to your ability) the edge of the chair. Keep it there for one second, then return to the starting position. Do four sets of ten repetitions. Then switch ankles. The higher the resistance of the stretch band, the harder is the exercise.
