  • Pull one knee to your chest.

  • Hold for 30-60 seconds. Return to starting position.

  • Repeat 2 times.

  • Switch legs.

  • For a double leg pull, pull both legs to your chest at the same time. Repeat 2 times.

For your safety, check with your healthcare provider before starting an exercise program.
