3. Reclined Hamstring Stretch

Lie down on your back with your hands by your sides. Flex your right foot, then lift your right leg by bending at the hip. Grab your leg wherever is comfortable: behind the thigh, knee, ankle, or the foot. Hold this stretch for 10 deep breaths, then repeat on the left leg.
